Other players can fill his role more easily than he can fill other roles.
If Myers or Ehrhoff are forced to play against Crosby, there won't be a significant drop off. If you are forced to ask Sekera to do what they do, the team is in a world of hurt.
Funny, since Myers **** the bed early in the season, was removed from the Shutdown Role, and replaced by Sekera (who went on to have a very good year)
Myers has an "off the charts" ceiling... but he hasn't come close to reaching it, and it could be argued that he has at best had 2 stagnant years of development, and at worst had a year of regression.
Sekera went through the same thing... in 09/10 Sekera regressed heavily, but then took a step forward in 10-11, and showed added growth and depth in ability in 11-12.
It's post like these that show a complete misunderstanding of what was happening last year.
