Anyway, one of the reasons Im posting here is because the more I sit back and look at our coach, Clouston, the more and more I draw parallels between him and John Stevens. I dont know how much you know about Clouston, but I wanted to see if you think my opinion is fairly accurate.
-Devoid of any personality whatsoever, never does anything on the bench but stare, doesn't talk anyone up, etc.
-Use of timeouts, or lackthereof, ever. (Although 45 games in he started to finally realize he can use a TO thats not in the final minute of the game
-AHL callup players who are supposed to be scorers- usually get 3 shifts on the top line to start game, doesnt score, gets demoted to 4th line and minutes cut back severely
-Lines- constantly changes throughout the game, no players really play together that long on the same line besides maybe one of the bottom lines
Most of all to me its the personality behind the bench. Wasn't that how Stevens was, or am I off base here?
Does Clouston discourage lateness and contuiously trot out one of his AHL boys and pretend he's better than everyone else on the team?
