Why is Buffalo keeping Grigorenko? He's playing less then 12 minutes per game including a 7 shift game a couple nights ago.
The 7 shift game wasn't a result of bad play, Ruff admitted to making a mistake playing him because he wanted to form a checking line against Staal since our top line got owned by them, so Grigorenko was the odd man out. He's looked better with every game.
Basically, we have awful depth up front on our team, especially in the middle. So this is probably the main reason why he is staying, plus I don't think it will help him develop anymore by sending him back to the Q to finish the 20 remaining games and playoffs when he shown he can already dominate that league.
I'm glad because I think this Sabres team is going to be a real stinker, I'd bet we would finish close to last in the East if Miller were to go down. So at least it's a reason to keep tuning in.
McClement needs more ice time. Maybe not 2nd line ice time but he deserves more. He's been solid.
I think part of the reason Carlyle keeps his minutes low is because he's such a good PK'er. You ideally want him to take 2 shifts on the PK, one at the beginning and one at the end. He needs to be fairly fresh to do that effectively.
As much as i hate Komi he has been good for us. We actually need him. Pretty sad team. The defense has been horrendous
Kostka is fine plays WAYYYYYYYYYYYY to much
Phaneuf has been dreadful after a few good games
Franson doesnt play
Gardiner has been hurt
Liles has been meh
Fraser... is Fraser, sucks
Holzer was **** in 1 game
Any good dman? nope
