Why didn't Reilly Smith play in those last 3 games when the season was on the line?

Quote:
“He has some real nice attributes as far as an offensive player goes. He just needs to become more familiar with our defensive structure and getting used to playing with pro players,” said Stars coach Glen Gulutzan. “I think he is going to be a good player in the future.”
Weeks later and a more rational perspective ... I get why Gully was gun-shy with him, but I still think considering how bad the offense was it would have been nice to just take the gamble.

However in a season that was filled with mostly good things from Gully, I think rationally this wasn't as horrible as I felt when it was going on. In terms of disappointment, this was a distant, distant 2nd to the PP.
