You can't expect a guy to improve much when he's playing 12 minutes a night with Mathers and Brown/Fitz (some of his line-mates last season when he wasn't a scratch). I just hope he's given a better opportunity, that doesn't necessarily mean i think he should be handed a top 6 spot but playing with goons and grinders 12 minutes a night won't help his development imo.
Well it was only a few games, how many minutes a night they play can be earned in practice too. Cousins could have not been playing well at practices.

I'm sure whatever reason they had him playing that many amount of minutes was justified.
