in the U-17 Nurse was on the power-play line, and Bigras was on the penalty kill, Ontario was down 2 men causing a 5-3 twice in the tournament, the coach put Bigras in that situation, and both times the opposite team did not score. My point is... he can shut doors too.
I know Nurse didn't have the best team in front of him to help him out and maybe the chemistry of the team was a factor for his bad plus/minus rating, but Owen Sound was in really bad shape for the playoffs and Bigras rose to the occasion to do his part, and was labelled the best defensmen on the team for the series by the Kitchener TV announcer... but that's just one's opinion I guess...
