No one is complaining that Anderson isn't centering the top line. We complain because guys like Nyquist and Tatar who have more than proven themselves in the AHL are not given a chance to strut in the big leagues.
Lashoff has never really shown anything other than being a bottom pairing kind of guy. Yet was given significant time with Kronwall.
That's the difference. We are talking about expectations based on past performance.
