I read this article this morning, and I came to realize that Ryan White's position in the Canadiens lineup is bad.

Let's not kid ourselves. He's expected to stick up for his teamates. He's not even that big of a player, neither is he a good fighter. He's just gritty and willing, and he's being turned into a goon.

The kid put up amazing points in his junior career. After like 40 NHL games, he's already classified as a semi-goon by most people.

He averaged around 3 mins TOI during Game 6 and Game 7 against the Bruins.

^How do you think that feel for a young player still being developped ?

You know White is bound to be "forced" to drop the gloves a few times during pre-season to solidify his spot in the roster.

I, for one, hope he doesn't.
No, he fights, because we have no one else who can. He does it on his own. If JM Martin had his way I think he would want White to fight less.
