Yeah, getting 9 games and somehow not getting the 6th d-man spot over Gilroy despite the fact that he deserves it REALLY tells me this team has an obsession with the guy.

I admittedly haven't seen any Hartford games, but it seems as though Heikkenen is outperforming Sauer in Hartford AND is more NHL ready.

It's a huge myth here that there are all these huge, defensively responsible, crease clearing NHL defensemen to be had out there. The big guys are usually too slow to be defensively responsible and the reverse of that means that the defensively responsible ones are smaller with some speed. I think it's just an emotional response by some people that are frustrated and want someone to go bash in some heads. That's not the answer for this team to start winning on a more consistent basis though.
