Glad to see Reaves is doing well. Really liked him. I believe that moving him this year before the playoffs was a HUGE mistake. It’s difficult to get all fired up at Rutherford after back to back Cups but the move made no sense.

Reaves was a healthy scratch for Vegas all the way until the last game of the previous round against the Sharks and has exactly 0 points in the 4 games since then.

I wouldn't exactly call that a key cog to the process.

Does this mean I can start a thread about Matt Niskanen, or Brooks Orpik or maybe Chris Kunitz?

Or James Neal, or Marc Andre Fleury, or David Perron

Yup, and after that one we can look into what Craig Adams, George Laraque and Ruslan Fedotenko are up to these days.

you guys could start those threads, but i didn't see any articles published in the Post Gazette today about any of those jagoffs

However, i did share the article about Ryan Reaves in this thread

If you don't like it, don't fuckin' read it

1000% agreed.

Also agree with Reaves about how the Pens mis-used him. He is showing his value now.

How is he showing his value, exactly?

He hasn't even played in over half of the games Vegas has played in the playoffs, and only got a sweater because William Carrier is out with an injury, meaning Reaves could very well be a healthy scratch again before this series is even over.

He's made absolutely no positive impact on the stat sheet, whatesoever. 0 goals, 0 assists, -1 +/-, 4 PIM.

Hell, he hasn't even been good at the one thing he's supposed to be good at, as he's routinely gotten out-gooned by Dustin Byfuglien.
