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.
i agree with how they treat players in general. but this kid was way, way over rated from the start. Neil Hodge wrote everywhere/everytime he had a chance that this kid was first round material, if not for the fact that he was leaning towards college. Ask all the Q scouts and not one will tell you Malone was leaning towards college. Agree on your timeline, unfortunately, no room for him to play....they've paid big money/picks/prospects to get all the players they now have. they have to play them.
the wildcats have one shot this year....after this year, they are in for a tough 3-4yrs.
