I've noticed since the Captain has been absent, he's been given heavy minutes to try and compensate for what they lose by not having Scott Harrington on their blueline. On top of that, I'm pretty sure he's playing hurt (he's wearing special protective equipment on his arm). That's one of the most amazing things I've been noticing about Sharks prospects--they play hurt because they have so much passion, drive, and heart (maybe even a little bit of stupidity haha).
What does Harrington playing (or not) have to do w/ Tierney's production? With Domi missing the last two games Tierney was given a bit more of an offensive role but he's regularly used as the shutdown/checking center - I'm not sure how much more Hunter can "relegate him to his very specific role".
As Sirom mentioned Tierney has been playing at a PPG pace over the past 5 or 6 weeks which is really good when you consider his role. His development seems to be going just fine.
