Witt said. "To me, if I can only play two out of the three, it's not ready, and I'm not going to put the team in that situation. I'd never do that."

Is that a shot at DP I hear? Good. It was beyond stupid that DPs ego was more important to him than coming back 100% the first time. He was never healthy enough to start the year & now he's gone for who knows how long. I'm still ticked off about what he pulled.

It'll be great to get Witt back.

And I agree with Gordon about Bailey. He looks very comfortable out there. He's got incredible vision & wonderful passing skills out there. I want to see him start shooting, but if he continues to play this way over the next 6 games, then there is absolutely no reason what so ever to send him back to Junior. Very very impressive for an 18 year old child playing in this league. Let's hope he keeps it up.

And yes, Josh Bailey really is looking good out there... better than most (all?) of us would have thought he would!
