Similar to Archibald. Those two players, if could play with more intensity and aggression, would be far more effective NHL players. This seems to be what TG is looking for this year and he is giving more ice time to those players who are exhibiting it and sitting those that don't. Virtanen is one player, that I believe , is a prime example of this and he has greatly improved his NHL game because of it. From day one Jake talked the talk about doing whatever it took for him to make it. When he was 19 you wondered if he was simply repeating what he thought people wanted to hear. 3 years later we are now realizing he was speaking from the heart. Gaunce has never got the amount of exposure that Jake has got. As fans we often forget that these players have been in hockey for +20 years already. They have a mind set towards their game that has gotten them this far. Highly likely that Green is questioning Gaunce's approach and asking that he make changes. For some that might be more than they are capable of adjusting to mentally. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
