It's possible that fans believe this year's team is weak, which would be IMO an incorrect assessment (it's probably stronger than any version of the club in the last 15 years, and certainly miles stronger than the 2009-2010 club). But since that assessment is repeated by mainstream sports media, it would not surprise me. Again, though, that is a problem for the marketing arm of the organization.
I think, personally, that it's a reaction to a forward being suspended 3 games combined with a lack of options in Hamilton due to a massive rash of injuries.
But I'm weird that way.
Why not just bump Darche or Palushaj up for 3 games?
I mean Darche has played top lines during playoffs both years, so this should be easy.
Palushaj has got near 100 ahl points,and really hasn't got a legit shot .
I want to believe that the real reason is due to injury , but again after reading that article , it really seems to make sense.Calling up Avstin for example , isn't the same as Leblanc .....is it?One gets you a loud pop the other one just a little fizz.
Anyway Mathman, i really hope your assessment is correct.
