Not hurt the team one bit when playing a role that large? I'm not sure I'd go there.

I think Sacco dressed him for too many games.

My problem with Sacco putting Bordeleau on a regular shift every night was that it forced him to put other players in a position to fail, or at the very least, forced them into roles that limited their usefulness.
(I cut some of your post to make it shorter and not waste as much space)
For once I agree with you. Bordy should not play much, and only when his skills are actually needed. Having him waste a roster spot for a guy who could kill penalties or at very least play better d and have a better D-zone coverage is something that needs to be addressed.
Having Bordy start 61% of all his starts in the O-zone is something that shouldn't happen for a 4th liner.
