I don't disagree here. As far as I'm concerned, I do not think that anyone can disagree with the fact that at this point, there is no way that Poti, Malacough, and Krispy should be playing while Bouchard is on the bench. Now, I would be in favor of playing Purinton as well. But there are people here that would disagree. I agree with you, Kazo. Neither Bouchard nor Purinton can do worse than our current worst 2 defensemen, Poti & Malacough. After that comes Krispy.

"How in the hell does the coaching staff reconcile that fact?"

Because like Uncle Glen must think, surely we cannot have either Simon or Barnaby play the PP becuase it would disrupt what is a cohesive unit. Personally, I would have Simon out there on all PP's with the instrucitions that his only job is to park himself in front of the net. And there is no way that Hlavac should have more ice time than Barnaby. I would give Matty a shot on the PP as well.
