I could care less if Melichar ever returns to the team. Why the Pens keep him on the active roster is beyond me. I'd rather have Nazzy on the roster than him.
Well Therrien decided not to play him tonight, which was a good move on his part. Why mess up the team chemistry by letting him go out there and screw things up? Nazzy has been very solid since his call-up and deserves to be out there. I hope Therrien keeps that waste of skates in the press box the rest of the season, but it probably won't happen.
