Hopefully Sproul gets a shot soon too - we have been lacking a big RH shot from the backend that can be an asset on the pp (without the defensive liability) for quite a while.
I don't really understand why Ouellet has seen action in the preseason as well as tonight while Sproul and Almquist haven't.
Almquist has put his time in to at least warrant a look while Sproul is probably more of what we need in a defenceman.
Maybe they're showcasing him for a trade...I know, I know, probably not a popular idea.
For the record I like Ouellet but you've got to give up something to get something.
"The leader must never close the gap between himself and the group. If he does, he is no longer what he must be. He must walk a tightrope between the consent he must win and the control he must exert."
When asked who won, Babcock said, “Well it doesn’t really matter as long as you don’t lose. It’s like going bear hunting, you take a slow guy with you in case the bear is hungry.”
