Good thing we're developing Toby Petersen and Francis Wathier and Travis Morin and Cam Barker and Luke Gazdic and Antoine Roussel and Mike Hedden and Tyler Sloan on our developmental team in the developmental league. Just think of the rewards that await the Stars after all these players are developed!
This. I can understand the need for a few AHL vets and what not, but there's no reason that Chiasson and even Glennie should be scratched in favor of any of those guys. And then throwing benn in there as a forward just makes it worse.
I don't think getting scratched is such a huge developmental roadblock. What's 15 minutes of ice time to guys who spend several hours per week on the ice in practice?
I just think it's ridiculous to scratch Chiasson because he had such a good game yesterday. Seems like if the objective is winning, one should play the best players... Development must be the priority here. That or dementia.
