Frustrated Is The Word For Kimmo Timonen

from Chris Emma of CBS Chicago,

When the trade deadline came and Timonen’s Philadelphia Flyers weren’t in contention, he was sent to Chicago, a Cup favorite. He hadn’t played all season but had worked to reach this point.

“The dream of winning was so bad, that I wanted to turn every stone,” Timonen said. “It was a long battle.”

Now here’s Timonen, with the Blackhawks in the Stanley Cup Final, and he’s a healthy scratch. He spent long hours on the ice and in the doctor’s office to get here. Now he’s wearing a suit while his team fights for a championship.

“It’s frustrating,” Timonen said. “I can’t lie to you. It’s hard, I’m not lying to you. It is what it is.”...

Does Timonen believe his play is worthy of ice time?

“Obviously not, because I’m not playing,” Timonen said. “That’s a sign.”

Realistically speaking though, can he really be surprised?  After not playing any games for Philly this season, did he expect to jump in and play in the SCF?
