For all his struggles, Fehr at least seems to be getting this concept, and is playing a more direct 'point A to point B' game that Burmi really needs to get better at.
Having said all that,
burying him on the 4th line
with Gagnon and Mittens is just a waste. At the very least, they should be shuffling him and Fehr in and out of that 2nd line spot.
He is on the 4th line I agree but the minutes he is getting is far from being buried
This has too be a development tactic. Give him good minutes playing a defensive role and just wait for him to take over offensively until the club has no choice but too play him in a top 6 role.
