Randy Carlyle had no choice but to play Fowler in his first year..they had nothing.. and Beauchemin was in Toronto.

A -54 is a good example of how good he is right? Dude is probably reaching Jack Johnson status.

Jake Gardiner was a -3 on a team that was -33 overall, I never saw him making any glaring mistakes and the mistakes he did make, his skating took him out of trouble.

I know it must suck for Anaheim fans seeing two young defenseman in Gardiner and Schultz (both of which coincidentally are compared to guys like Niedermayer's skating and ability to get out of trouble) but if you think that Fowler is a god while Schultz/Gardiner can't reach his status, you're the delusional one, not me.

You guys probably had Gardiner/Schultz pencilled onto your line ups..
