Exactly. Blues fans are happy that Woywitka is being sent down... I'd rather have him on the ice. At least he can skate decently and is willing to throw his body around. At this point in his career, watching Wade Redden attempting to seal the boards with a winger skating by is like watching a tank try to do a K turn. The number of hooking and tripping penalties he is forced into because of his lack of foot speed is absolutely maddening.
