I'm not sure why you don't just dress the 3 lines if you're going to provide 2-3 minutes a game to an entire line as it's not going to develop the young guys any more than watching the game from the stands and at least wouldn't count against them in games played. Otherwise you get a scenario like Lemmon or Carnevale where it shows 49 games played and 1 goal on the year. Made those kids look weak and is a direct reason why they asked out. A kid like Cram. Jr. has played the least and then comes in to play several token shifts the entire game is not a way to develop or boost confidence at all.
So true. I have also heard from players past and present that George has no communication skills whatsoever. They don't know why they're sitting. If you don't have the confidence in playing them, I'm sure they would rather be playing tier 2.
