I cannot believe I am actually reading this, there has to be some reason why Laviolette does not play him besides them trying to fit a round peg in a square hole....
.....maybe he does not fit the style of hockey which has proven to be successful in the post-season???? I am sure with his 8 minutes last night he will be right back in the lineup when Nodl is healthy.
