With this you are indicating that MacT didn't have further insight on the player or that he hadn't seen him enough in training, practice, games, etc?

When Schremp was here I tried to keep an open mind.But when you see other players practicing on fundamentals and Robby spending 30mins honing his latest trick or trying to flip pucks in a pail its not hard to take note the player spends far too much time on the wrong things.

Additionally for a player that had difficulty with his skating he sure didn't push himself in skating drills. Watch him carefully and he's the guy cutting corners and slowing down any chance he gets.

I thought he did well in NYI for awhile but there were always basic things that were wrong in his approach to the game and that stopped him from improving.

Robbie would have been a useful player in the 70's. He doesn't have the kind of conditioning or dedication it takes to be an NHL player now.
