Can anyone explain to me why Simon Despres is sitting tonight?

I'm not Bylsma bashing. I just simply don't get it. I personally believe Despres is the 3rd or 4th best defenseman that we have in the entire organization. Despres has done everything this organization has asked of. Hes faster, best all around player, bigger body, more potential than Mark Eaton. I like the Eaton signing, but it really bothers me that he gets playing time over Despres.

I really don't get why you aren't loyal to Despres in this situation. Mark Eaton is a mid season pickup. Besides experience, and maybe some slight positional awareness, why would you ever play Eaton over Despres?

It anyone like Jesse, Mikey, etc could break it down...I'd really appreciate. Like Bylsma seriously wants Letang - Eaton pairing. How can that even work? Eaton is so slow at this point in his career.

Thanks.

Hopefully Jokinen pans out and plays 3rd line wing so Cooke can drop down to the 4th line and Glass is scratched

Because Despres has been awful for about 5 straight games.

Having this stacked offense doesn't much matter when they can't get the puck out of the zone clean.

I completely disagree and haven't seen awful. Do you mind going into details? The entire team was really bad vs the rangers/sabres. You can't put that on him. Look how bad Niskanen was vs the Sabres. Why doesn't he sit?
