Liles and Gardiner, without a doubt makes a huge difference last night.

Against tough teams, I have no problem playing Holzer and Frazer.

Watch the game again from last night and pay attention to the trouble Kostka had along the boards.
We need safe minutes from players, not highlight reel end to end rushes of pinching, this is what Gardiner is proficient at doing right now. When eakins gives the word he has snapped out of it, he will be called up on merit, not because he is some star defender based on one year of good play.
