GMMG Missing the boat on Bottom Six?

It seems that the past 3 years the Nucks have missed the boat on some players who would have been great in the bottom six, players like Taylor Pyatt (a big tough grinder, good penalty killer) and Michael Grabner (speed galore) who would have been terrific for them if they were allowed to grow as players, and not just pulled every time they made a mistake.  As it stands right now Kesler is going to play with some pretty marginal players unless the Nucks pony up some cash for a UFA.   I think AV has to look at how he uses his players and realize that guys like Hodgson don't come ready-made, they need to play, gain experience, and go through the grind of a season before they are ready.  Both Pyatt and Grabner are good examples of players who would have been useful and were just let go for not much.
