Problem is 7 Ds, 5 of which are #6 defenseman on every other team (or nearly) and all of which have one way contracts. So I guess sherman had a choice to make. Olver, Bordeleau (which i think is two way... correct me if im wrong) or Barrie. Evidently he wants Barrie playing top minutes which he wasn't doing from the press box.
Sadly, at some point, you have to learn to play against NHL competition. Playing awesomely against undeveloped talent (the young 1st and 2nd year players) and long-shots (AHL vets) isn't the way to get better against NHL talent. Barrie is clearly a NHL caliber player and too good to be in the AHL at this point. I think this is the biggest issue I have with what's happening.
