How do you not play your top goal scorer on the power play? I don't know of any other team where they don't put their top goal goal scorer on the power play. The Admirals power play is now about 0-25. So with all of this going on I would say that Watson is not getting developed in Milwaukee at all so you might as well let him play about the same low amount of minutes in Nashville with him getting acclimated to the NHL.
Roundtable had him listed as a center last week, which might be the reason for his limited minutes and also why he hasn't gotten a look from Nashville. I don't understand why they would want him as a center, though, unless they're trying to groom him as Legwand or Fisher's replacement up the middle...
