  1. Feel like Green has no concept of how to coach the top six. Every single line plays a hard nosed bottom six style of hockey. When I watch Horvat he's playing like he's still with Dorsett and Kassian.

      i agree with those 4 top six players. green’s job is to find the players to go with them. i think of the bottom six players, pearson has shown to be the best fit with bo so far. green has tried several line mates with bo. i don’t know what kind of line mates would work the best  with bo. maybe we don’t have them yet. i admit louie is miscast but until they find the right winger for him, louie’s defense allows the other two, to press harder in the O zone. 

      imo, if people assigned ever forward to the line they should be on, there would only be 4 top six players. how is that green’s fault? 

      jake has really improved but still might be a 3rd liner.  leivo had some success there but really is a 3rd liner. 

      benning was hoping that ferland would be a top six winger. that hasn’t worked out yet. 

      in bending’s favour he may have drafted the other 2 top six wingers. 

      don’t think anyone on the farm is ready yet, i could be wrong. 

      i’m not saying that a new view of a coach couldn’t improve their out put but pardon the expression, you can't make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear. 

      green should be allowed 6 top players and then if they can’t take this team to the next level, then fire green and benning.

      Kole Lind has 39 points in 49 games. He's just learning to be defensively responsible too. 

      I'm kinda disappointed Gads has only 14 points in 32 games. However 10 of those points are goals. 

      It just kind of sucks we have a lot of players who aren't pulling their weight (err salary?).

      Coaches are supposed to bring out the best in their players and give them structure that will help them become the best they can be. They also need to have a system in place that gives their top players a chance to shine. They need to motivate and manage these players correctly and help them to recognize their fullest potential.
