Plunks them all on the fourth line and subs them in and out of lineup no matter how good they play. Tremaine had a goal and an assist and then was a healthy scratch the next game. Stephen Johnson scored his first goal of the year and then was a healthy scratch the next game after that. not a confidence builder for a young kid when you score and then are taken out of lineup the next game.
Malone had an okay first season in the Q as a 16 year old rookie. His injury last season is what put him behind the 8 ball. He was only able to player 33 games last season and wasn't the same after coming back. This year he is on a team that has a strong top 6 and Malone dosn't necessarily fit Flynn's bottom 6 two-way,checking forward role. Although he hasn't been contributing with the Wildcats , I think he'd flourish on a team like Sherbrooke where he could get more playing time and minutes on the PP. Malone is a solid skater, has good hockey iq and posseses a lethal wrist shot. I hope he has better luck on his next team.
