You didn't just 'mention' Collins. You were incredulous that the Sabres wouldn't consider him for the time being. Maybe they did, and decided against it? Do you know that they didn't?
Schiestel has been playing forward for a couple weeks now. That is the point of PTO's. They're short contracts for mainly injury replacements and most teams in the league actually utilize it. Or the Sabres could just call up their prospects in the ECHL too, but that's another story.

So yeah, when a coach and an organization constantly preaches about how important every game and point is, and then they allow a crappy defenseman to look out of place at wing for 2 weeks, it starts to annoy you.
