Many high end players dont go banging players all over the ice, rather concentrate on setting up players.

I agree that Silk was a favourite of Cull and the team, because he is a local area kid. Silk is a great kid, but just needs to smarten up on the ice.
You realize that Kontos was traded even before Kantor was acquired right? Blaine Smith was even interviewed after the Kontos trade and said that they made the trade so that your beloved MC would get 2nd line center ice time. When Kantor joined the team, he was on the 3rd line.

I also fail to see why you keep complaining and coming up with excuses about MC's ice time. He played a regular shift, saw 2nd PP unit time and even saw plenty of PK time as well. He was tied for 9th in the league last year with short handed goals. Stop making excuses for a player that can only look in the mirror for not developing and not getting drafted.
