GOD, why do coaches keep making this mistake!

Read my lips...er...words, folks. REINPRECHT CAN'T PLAY WING. All you need to look at is game film from the last two postseasons the Avs took part in. Both times Rhino was moved to wing and it was a disaster.

Yes, he has a good shot and yes, he's a smart player. But he doesn't know how to play wing. Steven doesn't know how to play away from the puck as a wing. He still chases after it wherever it goes like he's still a center. He doesn't get himself in position for the center to set him up for a shot at goal.

Maybe Sutter will make a fool out of me, who knows? But what I do know is that Reinprecht is not the versatile forward the press here in Denver made him out to be. He's a great center when he wants to be, but he is most certainly not a winger. Trust me on this...
