As much as you always pull for kids playing over vets, not signing Perry let that happen. Robertson played and was awesome. He probably got PP time sooner because Perry wasn't on the roster. Of course, once you get past Robertson, the other young forwards were ... not good. Like really not good. More like terrible. Gardner, Caamano, Dellandrea, and L'Esperance were so bad.
True, and it's not like we were going anywhere this season anyways. I still have high hopes for Dellandrea, but those other three... maaaaaybe Caamano will amount to a third line grinder. Gardner always seemed to be on the ice for crucial goals against, despite playing just 7 minutes a game.
We'll see about Diamani and maybe even Borque next season. They're scorers, tho, so it's unlikely they or Harley will ever see significant ice time under the current regime.
I'd say the history tells us scorers get ice time.
