Not sure if you know how to read, the first sentence of the post says that if Tatar were to start screwing up regularly then he would be getting **** on too, and rightfully so. Reading comprehension 101! Good thing for you I'm here too teach!
You said bashing Tatar was childish, because he hasn't had the chance to mess up. I say bashing Cleary after years of success just because he's run into a wall is childish.
If you look at the ES TOI and all the stats it proves Stuart was very effective offensively for not getting PP time. I think it was CB who talked about it.
Oh yes, Captain Bob who doesn't need stats because he WATCHES THE GAMES. Stuart was drafted in the first round because he was supposed to be an offensive defenseman. He was so bad at generating offense he bounced around the league until he came to Detroit where he was a defensive d-man who played big PK mins. There is no one who has followed Stuart's career who would tell you he's an offensive defenseman. It's laughable. There's no reason to think Lashoff couldn't play the same role as Stuart, ie defensive d-man who PKs and contributes 10-20 points a year.
