Reese's position in the system became muddled with the lockout. I don't think all 3 of Lovejoy/Strait/Bortuzzo would have opened the season still with the organization and he was likely to have the inside track on the #7 job based on experience and the fact that we wouldn't be wasting a prospect in the press box most nights...but with 2 of those 3 in WBS Reese is doing more to block prospects than to open up ice for them.

Mormina...much the same. With both teams running he's not blocking anyone and gives WBS depth and experience...with just WBS going he's blocking a youngster.

“The most terrifying fact about the universe is not that it is hostile, but that it is indifferent. If we can come to terms with this indifference and accept the challenges of life within the boundaries of death, our existence as a species can have genuine meaning and fulfillment. However vast the darkness, we must supply our own light.” - Stanley Kubrick
