Refusing to bring up a guy like Fraser or Sceviour during the middle of this season only makes it harder for the team to get more of our young players into the lineup in the future. Teams will always be hesitant to, straight out of training camp, throw totally untested players into their NHL lineup.
Obviously I disagree with the way that the team let R. Smith suck total *** for such a long period of time at the NHL level, but throwing a guy like Fraser into the fire and seeing if he can rise to the occasion is probably a good idea. If not, just send him back down.
