He was awesome last season and is only in his second year. Give the guy a break. He is a solid NHLer. I do agree with your defense, but I wanted that third pairing from the beginning of the season.
Why the staunch defense of Olesz? Just about every prospect (Weiss, Bouwmeester, Van Ryn, Kolnik, Stewart, Horton, Krajicek) has had to prove themselves in the AHL before earning an NHL spot. Olesz is on the big team not because he deserves it, because he sure as hell could benefit from boosting his ego with greater offensive responsibility in the AHL, but because we have no other options (blame Keenan and Martin).
