Seto assumes special treatment and gets it. No one likes it when stars get special treatment (drawing more calls, usually) in the NHL...This is an extension of that. It is "right" and reasonable (if you subscribe to idea that players should be treated equally on a team regardless of skill) to criticize Seto for taking extra days off. edit: extra days off for extra partying. No one minds when someone gets to leave when a family member is born or dies.
