Ice time has to be earned even moreso than given. Irving hasn't done that for pretty much two years, even in the AHL. So expecting management to have faith to keep him as a starter in the NHL while desperately trying to make the playoffs is a fallacy.
It's more of a spiral really. A player needs time and opportunity in order to prove themselves and so far Irving has yet to receive enough time. And I don't think it's asking for the moon to suggest that he needs at least one or two more games in this current audition - especially when there's nothing on the line playoff-wise.
