He has great insight into the game and it shows.


Coaching "experience" can come in different forms...doesn't have to be a Resume of direct experience....he knows the game.  He's been a great study of it.


When he  used to get caught pinching all the time he spent an off season learning "timing" and when to jump into the play/not based on positioning - his, where the puck was, where his back up was, etc.  To make it a decision not a reaction.  It really helped him.  He didn't just play the game, he absorbed a lot over the years.


He knows a whole lot about this game...I wouldn't pass him over based on being "green" (wow, that pun wasn't even intentional).  He'd make a great defensive coach.

We had Manny and never promoted him

Kevin has a good gig now

For sure. I am done with the rollercoaster ride.


Just hope that whomever we get is in the same boat and does well with a fresh start but with how this teams playing it isn't a good environment for anyone to step into.


Virtanen will likely play better just because he's on a team that isn't playing like trash too.

I think he’s just lazy and a bit immature and he’s home, and everything was easy here. He needs to go far, far away, where there’s no family or friends.

Next game, 

Insert: MacEwan, Juolevi and Virtanen. 

Take out Chatfield, Eriksson and Bailey.  

Have the lines be something like 

Miller Petey Hoglander 

Pearson Horvat Boeser

MacEwan Sutter Virtanen 

Roussel Beagle Motte


Hughes Benn

Edler Myers

Juolevi Schmidt. 


Just anything... Anything, let's hope MacEwan and Jake are furious and play with fire in their belly. Because literally what else are you gonna do. 

Hoglander seems to be the only guy that never gets tired.

It’s 110% lack of effort. 10 minutes before a shot in the game? No hitting? No coverage!?? Indifference across the team? Bo- get your crap together. You did  NOTHING as a captain. You didn’t even finish your checks. You’re the first problem.
