Not all rookies are the same, personally the way we used Sven last game is the way I think we should
I know, it's just that that specific example was a poor one. A much better one would have been Seguin, who primarily played on the 4th line in his first year with the Bruins and was even a healthy scratch at times.

Baertschi on the 3rd line with skill and getting somewhere around 13-15 minutes a night is perfectly acceptable. Baertschi on the 4th playing with Comeau and Begin and getting less than 10 minutes a night? Not so much. Thankfully, Hartley isn't Sutter and Baertschi isn't getting the Backlund treatment thus far.
