Go and watch these third and fourth line players practice on their own or with trainers and you'll see that while they might be considered average or below average when compared to the superstars, they are still better than any other players in the minor leagues in North America and Europe.
Sorry but thats not true.

Because some players haven't reached the NHL yet or have no interest in the league means that every player in the NHL is better?

Colton ****ing Orr played in the league. There is no argument to be made that proves he has an business playing in the NHL otherthan he can punch a face real hard.

If the league were cut back down to 26-28 teams thats about 46 players cut. I'm sure a list of 46 players can be made of players like Orr who have zero business skating in the NHL.

The PA knows it. Thats why Barch is drunk and whining on twitter.

There are a lot of people with positions of importance or whose opinions are respected that have been saying the same things on NHL radio.

The core issue is the size of the league and the location of some of those teams.
