I'm new to hockey...there, I've said it. That means there is a lot of stuff that I just don't understand. I love the game, and I love following the Flyers. There is a lot for me to still learn, and I'm man enough to ask questions. But this is something I just don't understand. Zherdev seems to be a fairly solid player. He looked good on Friday against the Devils, and was looking even better today. I can't figure why Laviolette has been so unwilling to play him this season. Can anyone tell me why?
