Do people think the Wolves are some crazy diamond in the rough ? I mean seriously people the team is not that good. The fact you think Arniel is a dumbass explains everything . From 2006-2010 he averaged 40+ wins his entire time there ? In 320 games coached for the moose he has 181 wins! He groomed and molded so many Moose players into the NHL. The Wolves are just plain soft and really could not check there way out of a wet paper bag. The constant line juggling is because the first 2 lines are constantly crapping the bed. Who wouldn't switch it up to get something going ? The team is barely average and needs more skill, toughness and confidence. Let me break it down for you.... We need better prospects PLAIN AND SIMPLE !
Almost half of those wins came when he had Schneider as his goaltender. And even then he was part of a different organization with a team full of veteran players, and his teams still often got outplayed. It was up to Schneider most nights to bail them out. Trust me I know, I watched them.
The only time he did something significant with a team was when he had a stacked Moose team with players like Krog, Jaffray, Grabner, Hodgson, Baumgartner, FIstric, and Schneider.
Trust me his coaching record is not impressive. And the fact that even top AHL players are struggling under him just goes to show that he has trouble motivating his players.
