In reality, when your opinion isn't agenda driven, you can see the opposite. Good for him. It shows that the organization thinks he's at least close.
Holzer had his chance, now Blacker who's next in line will get a good look from Carlyle. It's a nice chance for Blacker to show what he's got.

He's had his ups and downs in the AHL but has been really solid since the NHL lockout ended. He went from the bottom pairing to top minutes on both the PK and PP.

If he does slot into the lineup, I do hope he plays a simpler game. He does tend to get carried away going for a hit, pinching at the blueline or forcing a pass.
