And Zanon, who's been tossed around the league like a wet bar rag at happy hour, is surprisingly not playing up to snuff.

No, I didn't necessarily want Sherman to just leave two spots open for the rookies, but I fail to see the point in getting those pluggers in the first place when they couldn't even plug properly.

And while some of O'Byrne's issues are his own fault, taking a guy with no discernible puck skill and then adding another guy with no discernible puck skill on a blueline that was already lacking said puck skill was bound to expose him to some degree.
