I'm fine with sitting DP on several fronts. 1st of all, thirteen years remain on his contract and it behooves the Isles to look at the big picture. Instead of chasing his tail trying to rush back, he can fully rehab. Secondly, the team is going nowhere and the barrage of shots he would face most nights could mess with his physche. Lastly, I watched a lot of the WJC and we HAVE to get John Tavares. The kid is the real deal and was a man amongst boys even though many of the players were already drafted and a year ahead of him.
