Proposal: Hire the Sedins for Player Development

Recommended Posts

Bo Horvat grew up out of learning from the Sedins and look how much that helped him. Boeser only played a little bit, Petey never has and Quinn even less. Would love to have the Sedins be in practice with the players and give little pointers here and there. Especially in the fitness area. Think it would do a lot of good for the young players.

If they taught via leading by example, how are they going to do that as player development coaches?  With pointers?  What is it you think they will do that guys like Manny isn't?

Well for one, they were a lot more successful than Manny was. Can help with the powerplay. Show what to do in terms of fitness etc. How to stay effective from game 60-82. Henrik hasn't got injured much, there's gotta be something he can teach.

Not always.  Success on the ice doesn't necessarily translate to success behind the bench.

Maybe. Bo certainly needs to learn how to control the play in the offensive zone from the Sedins. His o-zone time is too short. 

 

If Bo adds that to his game, he will be scoring 80+ points and join the likes of Bergeron et al as one of the  premium centers in the league.

Rather than addition how about subtraction?  Isn’t it about time we moved on from the guy responsible for coaching the power play?  (Brown).

I agree we need a power play coach that will take our power play from #4 in the league to first :emot-parrot:

One will be GM, & the other, a western "scout"(lots of vacay time). They secretly alternate the gigs on even/odd days, and/or wks. Already mapped this out, so a guarded secret(keep it under the cap, eh).

 

Pay Brackett handsomely to assist in this ultimate op. JB can leisurely enjoy a light sched after a few Cups!
