Poetic justice.
Marshall and Helgeson EARNED those spots, Skjei did not. Ranger fans complain about his icetime, well, he didn't earn it. I agree that Marshall was only slightly better than Skjei this season, but the spot goes to the player with seniority. Thier fans don't dictate anything.

He could go to Regina next yr (they own his CHL rights). It would've been nice if he went there this season and played a big role with them.
Look what Schmidt said to Skjei, he was playing as a forward his freshman year. Now he's the most sought after Dman coming out of college.

Patience, Skjei was not drafted to make the team in 2013.
