I dont think its right what Torts is doing..I dont see
how the kid playing 8 mins a night will hurt the team
It has nothing to do with right----it has to do with winning. Torts is making a judgement call. Again Stu is in the lineup which says something. If he gets a ring out of this WTF! It's a hard game with hard lessons. A guy who was an AHL'er--possibly a career AHL'er gets a shot and does well but when it gets down to do or die he sits on the bench a lot. What of it? Next year--whether he's here or somewhere else--maybe he has that ring and maybe he's still in the big leagues instead of riding AHL busses. One way or another he's taken a big step forward.
