However, Pitkanen became goat boy on the team and it wasn't going away...I'm surprised Coburn has redeemed himself and luckily b/c he's a good D man yet people still want to trade him.
Right, but Bartulis is fringe at best, so it's not really fair to him... Pitkanen/Niinima, they had the skill to play in this league. Bartulis may not (which is why him getting so little PT this year, is just killing him developmentally I fear).
