Very true lol. If you don't fit the bill within a week or so you're back at the farm. I am all about moving up players when they are ready but it's getting funny. How many years have we been saying we need help up front. Now I imagine the difficulties and implications with moving key parts, prospects and draft picks but come on!!!!

He was the 13th forward today at practice, so it looks like he is going to sit out tomorrow night, which he doesn't deserve.

We aren't a meritocracy. Except when we are.

That is how a "Therr-ocracy" works.

I don't have an issue with Hudon sitting in place of Mitchell. Mitchell was a more effective player overall prior to his injury and is more suited to the 4th line role Hudon will be abandoning.

By that same standard, I have an issue with Hudon sitting in place of Byron. Hudon has been a more effective player in the last 2 games and is more suited to the 1st line role Byron is currently occupying.

I'm not suggesting Hudon is a legitimate 1st liner at this point in time, he's just a better option.

I also have no issues with Byron. The way he is being used is the problem, not the player himself. (A recurring theme.)

I also don't see much point in playing Byron over Hudon in the top 6. Byron is a 4th line player, just like Flynn, just like DSP, and for the most part just like Weise. None of these players is a legitimate option for a RW position on the top two lines. So while I am pleased to have Mitchell back in, Mitchell should be in on the 4th line replacing a 4th line player. Right now, there's an opening in the top 6, and I agree with Ricochet that Byron has no purpose being there, whereas Hudon might.

Both Weise and Byron are behind Hudon right now IMO. Weise has been awful for 10 games now, yet he continues to get a stupid amount of time on the PP and 5 on 5. I think Byron has been much better than him as of late. I would have no problem with Weise sitting in favour of Hudon for a few games.
