I don't know. Jurco looked good in the so

 

Yep, Hopefully Babcock was paying attention. Jurco absolutely had the goalie beat, just couldn't get it up.

He played in 2 regular season and 10 playoff games last year.  That's not nearly enough to establish anything.  Tatar scored 39 points in 73 games last year and showed he was an NHL player.  Those are two entirely different situations.

 

So that takes away that he was our best dman last year in the playoffs? Go read what Babcock and Blash had to say about him. He is better then Evans and should have been playing over him. Plain and simple.

He had several opportunities.  He apparently didn't do anything in camp, practice, or 18 AHL games to prove he was better than a career minor league plug who hasn't scored a point this year.

 

Except he was our best Dman last year. I guess we should have gave up on Tatar this year because he started slow too. 18 games to start the year is way to small of a sample size, especially after what he did last year.

Evans provides that veteran leadership people always cry about. You know so we don't eco me the oilers.


And it says a lot about Blackman if he couldn't even earn a start over a CAREER ahl player.

 

He did last year and was probably our best dman in the playoffs, he wanted to be a regular this year.

 

Sure he wasn't off to a good start this year but he is better then Evans for sure.

 

This is more of a roster mismanagement by Holland then Backman being a "sore loser". Kindl / Lashoff shouldn't even be on this team, XO should be up full time.
