Hey Larry, you do realize that you are comparing Fedor Tyutin, who is a 23 year old defenseman with a mere 150 games under his belt, Pock, who at the age of 25 has a whopping 32 NHL games to his credit, and Rachunek, who even though he is 26, has less than 4 seasons worth of game experience, most of which were pre lockout and pre rule changes to Malik, who broke into the league well over 10 years ago? Kaspar has pretty much played his way off the Roster... and Ward gets to handle the other teams offensive forwards while your boy Marek gets to cruise around on autopilot with the rest of the fun bunch. If Kasparaitis were playing in Malik's position, he'd probably do just as well, as would Ward. The young guys I'm willing to cut a break because they're young. They will make mistakes, hopefully they learn from them. Malik, at this stage of the game, isn't going to learn anything new. Malik and Roszival are statistical wonders. If you only watched the boxscore, you'd think they're great. It's far from the truth.
