I don't either. He's done everything the team has asked (Filling in for Kipper while he's injured) and has been punished for it.

He does need polish. He does need further coaching and development. He is on the verge of being a lost cause. But all of this will not be dealt with properly with him sitting on the bench at Abby. It will not be resolved with the threats of benching and demotion hanging over him every time he takes the ice.

Whatever happened to the principle that people learn from failure? But to learn you also have to play.

I wish Irving well and hope his next team treats him a bit more fairly than the Flames.
