Ironically, they thought he would benefit from the strict positioning systems that Randy Carlyle demands of his players and Dallas Eakins is attempting to institute this year.

Regarding Nazem's physical play: you couldn't be more wrong. He is engaging physically on most of his shifts. His problem is balance and Barbara Underhill has been working with him at least once a week -- sometimes two.

I'm not about to argue the other points, but uninformed opinions often become widespread to the point that people start viewing them as reality.
I didn't say he didn't engage physically, i said he was to small to be effective at it. While you were speaking to the coaching staff, what was their report on Colborne and our goaltending?
