The weird thing is that the one thing Philip Larsen needs to work is his tendency to take stupid penalties. But that's not the reason he's out... he's with Gulutzans' own words: "The odd man out". As piqued wrote on the Stars board that's might to be taken literally - the oddest man to scratch

Well Dallas wouldn't deal him as the GM thinks highly of him. He and coach is simply just not on the same page. But it would be kinda nice to get Philip in a place where 1) The coach appreciate him 2) Where the GM and the coach is in the same place.
Maybe it's because danes are well-mannered that they know they can be send in the doghouse without complaining too much - scratching a vet might end in too much team and press tumult.
Just very weird to scratch players that have match-training from Sm-liiga at this early point of the season compared to other that are not really in shape yet.

Good to know that Eller is back - hope he really gets some succes now to silence the critics.
