I did think it was possible that they are currently being worked harder than any other other team in the league as their coach can seemingly be a madman about that and has plenty of reasons to be pissed off right now.
I agree that JVR should definitely get some more time in that role. He may not do as well as Knuble just yet, but I at least like that his style and approach is more like Knuble's and less like Hartnell's.
But if PL doesn't like how JVR plays much, yet he always preaches to get in front of the net and crash it, he's just an idiot. Seriously, if he won't play JVR, I want Stevens back to be honest. And I still feel they should scratch Hartnell, Asham and Pyorala, and put in Legein, Kalinski, and Powe instead of them. Legein I would love to see in the NHL. Kalisnki and Powe are smarter and harder working players than Hartnell and Asham if you ask me, also with more speed. These are also guys that would probably love being worked to damn hard if it meant for them to be better and a chance to play. See I feel you should play only players that you know WANT to play, WANT to do the work right and WANT to win. Hartnell I can definitely say doesn't really have that mentality right now. Lines if those 3 were scratched and the others brought in:
Those top 3 lines would be faster, have a better scoring touch and also less dumb ass penalties. Also considering how we are tanking, I think it might be a good idea right now to gauge how good our deep pool of prospects are.
