I don't really care how servicable McQuaid has been, Stuart is the better defenseman and should be in the lineup. I'm sick of this Claude BS. You play your best players, and Stuart is a better D-Man than McQuaid and Boychuk.
Seguin too. What's the use for a guy like Thornton against Detroit, who are anually ranked at the bottom of the league in fighting majors? Other than that great pass to Ryder against Montreal, Hamill has played ok, but not well enough to warrant ice time over Seguin. Caron hasn't done much in the last two games.
They should be in the lineup next game, but knowing conservative Claude, they won't be.
