It may seem like I'm a Klein hater. I love the guy. He's got great potential. But right NOW, he is no better defensively than Zanon or deVries. Klein needs time to develope. Trotz doesn't believe in sacrificing team play for the benefit of an individual. And I agree with him.
Seeing as how he is significantly better than Devries, Zanon, and Koistenen offensively - saying he is only "just as good" defensively is not a sound reason to exculde him from the lineup......
