Hasn't earned it? He was the only reason we got any points last year when Kipper didn't play and while his numbers haven't been great he has sure as hell earned his shot more than Taylor. Young players need a chance to shine while they do have to earn it they also have to be given a longer look than older players as they need time to adjust and adapt to a new league. The management was simply looking for a reason to dump Irving back to the AHL and they got it in his last game here. He put up good numbers last year but be complained he couldn't get the wins this year his numbers haven't been great but he was getting wins and we simply gave up on him.
