Player C: 7 G, 19 A, 26 pts, -2 in 61 games
Player C is Crawford, Player B is Schiestel, and Player A is TJ Brennan, and those are their numbers in their respective rookie years. Crawford is right there with them.
I'd go Tropp next.
Add Mark Adams.
That's a very valid argument. It's hard to keep passing him over, but I think the numbers game is against him. You have to also consider the difference in role. I believe Brennan was relied on more in his rookie season than Crawford is now. Schiestal was odd man out in that same season, but I'm not sure why. Crawford's a guy that's not going to get called up before Brennan, Schiestal or Gragnani (if he's still around). That means he's going to be competing with McNabb, Biega, possibly Pysyk, and possibly Persson. Not to mention that Leopold, Morrisonn, Weber, and Myers will all definitely be around to hold down 4 spots.
