He actually said that before I surmised that he saw nearly all of the games; but nice try. And you can't deal in a world of hypotheticals. You can't say "Torts would have", because there is no way of knowing. Furthermore, that was the season prior to. I'm sure you can say that as a Rangers fan, Kreider was better last year than the the year before that. Progression and regression are real factors. You need to take that into account before saying as an almost matter of fact that a coach would have done something when, in reality, no one knows. Viro stated his opinion that he looked like a bottom pairing d-man, and I have addressed this enough times now.

Less biased because he's not a fan of the team that Sauer plays for.
