Liles is so inconsistent, he was playing poorly so RC benched him for 12 games and when RC let him play he played inspired but he's sliding again. TO needs 30ish year old d-men to be more consistent than Liles is prepared to deliver, expendable.
Why would you say Fraser has zero upside?
Are you saying stay at home d-men don't get better as they get more experienced?
Dude is 26. I am counting on him to continue to grow as a player. These are the kind of players that don't break in at 20 to the NHL.
Under Carlyle he has improved this year and will continue his growth.
