Otherwise, you know, he wouldn't be getting those minutes. Unless you are going to tell me that they know he isn't playing well and they know there are better options...but they still play him because they are stupid or because they hate Gus or something like that.
I'm usually in agreement with you on a lot of things. But for the most part this short season, Mez has been bad. Fumbles the puck when it's on his stick, loses positioning in the defensive zone, gets way out of position going for a check, and he makes poor passes, especially on the powerplay.
Now, I will say the rest of the defense has been pretty bad as well, so to call out Mez for his poor play is a little over the top.
