- They talk about him having a disappointing season but fail to mention that he was injured for almost all of last season, don't talk about what a great job he's done to improve his physical play, positioning and the fact that he's been a one of the bright spots for the Barrons blueline since Marincin left.
- Makes it sound like he doesn't appreciate what he brings to the Oilers in the least. He's exactly what Edmonton needs. He's big, skates very well and is the first guy to go into the dirty areas.
- And what natural ability are you referring to? The writer needs to be a lot more precise. Sounds like he's never watched Gernat play before and at this point I'm doubting that this guy ever watches or Oilers or the Barrons play.
Talk about epic fail.
To add to this, I'm pretty sure Gernat plays with Fedun, and Fedun is not sheltered at all.
