Have we forgotten that Suter, Weber, Hamhuis, Blum, Josi all had huge roles in playoff pushes and playoffs.

And althought they weren't relied on to be sexy goalscorers, splaing, bourque, and to a lesser extent Wilson and Smith all had decent roles. If they are good enough to play and handle the system, they play.
Wilson? The guy that was basically benched the last two playoffs? Which means if we make it next year, it'll really be his first year in the playoffs and we have no idea what he can do. Not a good use of talent.
