I want ice time to be based on performance... in actual hockey games that count.

Chiasson is not playing at a high level. And if draft position had nothing to do with who was on the roster and it was all about merit in training camp then Glennie should be in Idaho by now, should he not?

I didn't... I pretty clearly singled Vause out as not being a scrub.

I'm complaining about Hedden.

I don't see what's wrong with 3rd line AHL minutes.
