Bourque, Jean, Parlett, Pyett would've all been better options.

How's the rest of the team supposed to feel now? "No matter what I do, the organization will favor their Golden Boys, so why would I play like a give a damn?"
You're judging guys based on +/- now? Really? You think Kreider's up because he's a golden boy? None of Bourque, Jean, Parlett, and Pyett are doing anything all that noteworthy. As idiotic as I think the McIlrath pick was, maybe the organization is just a better judge of overall hockey play than you are.
