I'm not saying that will happen, but that is why you don't see many young rookies in the NHL playoffs. It isn't usually a good idea for their development. That said, I think Tinordi could be one of those rookies that may be able to handle the pressure. He went to the Memorial Cup as captain just a year ago. But it's pretty much up to management to decide if they think it is a good idea, as they know much more about his development than we do, and it seems their final decision is to place Tinordi on the taxi squad.
