We've been over this in other threads, but you asked nice ....

Nothing really went wrong for Bayda. He had a solid camp, but other players got moved around to the point where he wasn't going to play on the top three lines, so they sent him down to get more icetime in an offensive role. Staal earned first line time with his awsome camp ... Vasicek's conversion to LW went far better than expectations ... and Maurice is obsesses with playing Craig and Kevyn Adams on the third line to reward them for playing so well last year when everybody else pretty much stunk.

Bayda's still on a growth curve, so spending a lot of time on the bench in Raleigh didn't make any sense.
