It's all how you use people. Personally, I have no problem with Abby. He's an average 4th liner. He works hard and doesn't make a lot of mistakes and gives top six guys a breather. But when you put him in the top six, that changes everything from an expectation point of view. He's just not a top six NHL guy. I hear very little complaining about Miller for example, because he's being used in the role he's best suited for. Cleary was a top sixer at the height of his career, not anymore. We just seem to use people wrong. Tatar has top six talent, so does Nyquist. Nyquist is never given an opportunity for whatever reason. It seems almost psychotic on Babcock's part. He brings him up, uses him a few minutes and then sends him down. Not even enough time to evaluate him in a game situation. I'm really confused by Babcock's handling of players.
