before the proverbial mud gets thrown around mcbackup's crease, i want to examine his games played last season to see if the coaching staff ever gave him the opportunity to succeed.
check it out:
in green: game 2 of a back to back.
in blue: relief game
in black: a 1pm start and game 1 of a back to back.
so, looking at this, i'd say shaft.
though he didn't look good at all tonight (but should we chalk it up to confidence based on the above ??!)
