Not saying that Soetaert was a problem at all - he built a great core, but to be honest, we haven't seen any of them let off the leash yet.
Funny how there is so much Constantine bashing when he has had such success with the WHL castoffs! As far as "letting someone off the leash" these kids are learing to be two-way hockey players, playing within the team's overall abilities, not beyond it.
In the years ahead, as the kids Soetaert assembled mature and replace the guys nobody wanted, there will be no leashes. Only kids who are more concerned about the name on the front of the sweater than the name on the back.
Funny, too, how you can say Soetaert is OK, but not like Constantine, who Soetaert hand selected to coach the guys he assembled...
