detrimental to the success of this team.
dude... seriously, that's just asinine. as much as Therien and Brash frustrate the hell out of me, this team is on top of the NHL in points at the moment and is on an absolute tear. you sit on here and bash Hitch on a regular basis (almost everything you say can be statistically proven to be either inaccurate or a huge skewing of the truth).
would i like Carter to be getting more minutes? yes. ya know what though, he can go out there and earn them like everyone else. he can FORCE Hitch to play him, which quite frankly he hasn't done. he's put up good numbers, but that line was getting DOMINATED last night... every shift they were out there, especially at the beginning of the game, they were having problems. so yeah, they didn't get a lot of minutes... that's life. Hitch's job is to win, not babysit. the link above suggests that he's doing his job...
