Richards was benched when he became too afraid to make a play. Gaborik, when he's being lazy, gets benched. it happened to Dubinsky, it happened to Stepan, it happened to Hagelin, he calls out kids, he calls out vets.

hes never had 1 bad thing to say about Kreider. Kreider is doing this to himself, because hes a KID. very few kids can come in and do what he did in the playoffs...he was fantastic, but hes fallen a bit back down to earth. there is a learning process. people forget how Callahan got sent down and wasnt playing well. How about MDZ? Rangers have integrated so much youth, and yet Torts is terrible at developing kids? gimme a break.
Inferno, strong post. I have nothing to add but felt (especially after reading some of the other posts) you deserved this recognition.
