That's always the issue with this team and its penchant for mid-grade young players that are nothing more than 2nd liners and nothing less than 3rd liners. We have a cluster of guys that could play in the same spot, so this dilemma always rises. Is he not getting enough time with better players, or is he struggling so much he can't even contribute for the line he's on now? Always the question.
