Doesn't make sense to throw a professional rookie into a scoring role in the playoffs if you have a guy who's potted 20 AHL goals on a weak offensive team and is five seasons into his pro career as an alternative.

Not to mention the other point, that guys should earn opportunities like these, not be gifted them. Lest we forget how throwing Bernier to the wolves in 07-08 almost irreparably damaged his psyche.
