J.I.A.H.N Posted January 9, 2020 Share Posted January 9, 2020 HI I have been wanting to have a discussion on this issue for some time. As we are still evolving and getting closer to the TDL, it maddens me to some extent that Benning and Green have not begun short term call ups as any more that a way to raise their cap floor, with any player seldom getting any meaningful game experience, when called up. The other benefit of this is to be able to gauge their young players development in a game situation against other NHL talent. I think it is extremely important, and I feel it is an area, where Benning and Green are not doing a good job. As most of the regulars know, I am a big supporter of Benning and Green, and think they are doing great jobs, but I can not back them on this. How are we to know if they can fill in a spot from within if a trade comes up that makes sense and Benning wants to make a move. I am reminded that some players play better with higher IQ players, and some are game type players, that always play better in games, rather than practice. I feel, bringing up players for short 1 to 3 game stints, is solid for development...….I think the follow players need to be brought up for those reasons. Lind, Rafferty, Brisebois, Jasek, and Juolevi need to be looked at the same can be said for playing both Demko and McEwen on a more consistent basis Winning can not be the short game, at the expense of the over all picture...…... After all, just look at Fantenburg as an example......IMO, absolutely no one on CDC had any idea that Fantenburg could play as well as he could until he got into the line up, and when he did he out played Benn, putting Benn up in the press box. The funny thing is Green and Benning did not know, until he got in and got some playing time...….. So could there be others? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
