Pirri's play merited how long he stayed with the Hawks. Beyond points, if he had continued to play well the Hawks and Q wouldn't have sent him down. It's as simple as that. It's not like Q asks a lot of young players. He doesn't demand that they come in and score a ton of points or be impact players, but he asks players to commit to a two-way game and find was to contribute when you're not scoring.

This board is so childish. Brandon Saad, Andrew Shaw and Marcus Kruger didn't get playing time because they're Q or Bowman favourites. They got playing time because they committed themselves to what the coaching staff wanted from them - Pirri didn't. Had he, he'd still be here.
