After listening to Benning discuss this trade I have to say I'm quite concerned about the development in Utica. Benning described the game they are trying to develop as essentially a grinders game, hard on the puck, chasing down low is what I recall him saying. That's great for guys like MacEwen but trying to turn a skill guy into a grinder isn't development, it's counterintuitive and pretty disturbing. It also sheds some light on why the Comets haven't been producing NHL players at all. Gaunce isn't an example I'd use, there hasn't been a NHL player of any real impact from that team at all.
