Imo, he's been better than both Cullen and Brodziak, so I don't get it.
I also don't understand why he is sitting Konopka the way he has.
I get it, Konopka took a stupid penalty a couple games ago. It's not because of that we lost... He was trying to fire up the team, who had no legs to skate for whatever reason. He's one of our best face off guys and he is also one of our best forecheckers. He's decent at cycling the puck, and he plays the fourth line roll well.
maybe, just maybe this whole lottery and gambling with lines is Fletchers idea to keep certain veteran players value up. everyone sees that theres some players shouldn't be there but keeping em on good minutes and collecting points (good idea on paper eh) should give better value in change, then after table has been cleaned put the "real lines" together.
just my 2 cents
