Nisky is a decent top four guy, but he is being built up way too much around here.
When 2 of our top 4 were out, we lost our last two games. Since they've come back and the rookies' minutes were reduced, we've won 3 in a row.
Maybe it's because we were playing Jersey. But maybe giving top 4 minutes to our top 4 defensemen has played a part in returning to our winning ways.
I think we might be building up our
too much around here. Let them earn trust over time. DB has gone out of his way to make a spot for Despres AND gone out of his way to rotate Bort in to get some time - they're clearly priorities. We don't need to be giving them 15 minutes a night right off the hop to bring them along.
