Playing Ivanans as much as he does.

Playing LaBarbera as much as he did early in the year.

Do you think Kopitar, Brown, Frolov and O'Sullivan just turned into bad hockey players over the summer, no, they are being grossly misused by this coach. Same can be said for Handzus.

I love what he has done with the defense, but these forward lines make absolutely no sense whatsoever. You have a 4th liner on the #1 line, you have a defenseman playing wing, you have a talented sniper on a 4th line with a rookie and a defenseman, and the same sniper getting 0 PP time, you have a player who can barely skate and handle a puck on a stopper line with Handzus.

And people wonder why this team can't score goals.

How can he justify these lines?
Those are my main beefs. Why not use Richardson instead of Harrold as well? How about put Boyle on the PP? For a lineup with a silly amount of imagination it is pretty vanilla results.
