Default Zack Shankar

I'm sorry to say but I think we are a much better team without him in line-up.
We diehard fans pay good money to see the best product that we have in our system.
IMO, any defenseman that sits, ie. billy c or hunter, are more valuable than shankar.
He too slow, not playing tough, erratic passing, no slapshot.
All I can think of is that his shot blocking is pretty good. Thats it.
So I would like to hear some other fans input because maybe I'm missing something here?
Honestly, I would release him immediately.
Also, he wont be here next year when we will be much better, so let the young guys develop.
It is nothing personal against shankar but I believe us diehard fans can express there opinion on players that are underperforming and someone sits that is not such a liability as shankar is.

I stated basically the same as you on a previous message.
I wonder if they would try to deal him so that the younger players can develop or,,,
Heaven forbid to contact Hamilton because as a result of yesterday's trade, they once again have 4 O/A's on their roster.
One of the D-men might just fit in just right.
I have learned the value of having 3 O/A's on a team, They make them older and with the right person, they lead by example. Example, Mr. Brack that they picked up last season....

Defensively, the Ice Dogs have played a lot better in the games Shankar is not in the line-up. Hunter and Constantinou have demonstrated the ability to skate and move the puck more effectively. In addition, they 're both younger, with up-side, and playing time means development. Bradey Johnson and Liam Ham are two great examples of that.

As an OA, Shankar probably provides a lot of leadership, however, his ability to hit is no longer an asset in this “No Contact” league! The OHL has evolved into a league that is not well-suited for someone with Shankar’s skill set. It’s a shame!

...but if he is underplaying and not living up to that reason, never seems like a long time. Our last GM had a hard time admitting flubs, I think Joey Burke has a better understanding of the word "whoops" . Far better to admit you got fooled in a trade or the player stopped playing to potential, than to perpetuate the problem by continuing to play them (can you say Boston).
