Sacco has choices...and for better or worse, he's made the decision to keep O'Brien as far from the ice as possible on game day. We can debate the quality of Sacco's decision making powers if you'd like but he is penciling in Elliot over SOB right now and has allowed Barrie the time to elevate his game since EJ went down. You can call that not having a choice but when the AVs roll every night with a newly resigned SOB eating nachos every game-night I'm not buying it.
