Yup..made a similar argument. Not getting an NHL capable backup in a season like the current one is a very poor management oversight IMO. If this team was more of a contender it would really stick out. I mean one of the reasons Bryz did poorly come playoff time for Phoenix was the fact he would play 70 games...
