Wouldn't it make more sense to can the coach if he's doing more harm to your developement system rather than harming your prospects by playing them over their heads.I'm not sure who coached springfield last season but i would guess whoever it was wouldn't be worth keeping around in that situation.Its not like AHL coaches are making big money.I'm not saying you're wrong but if you're right that may be the very worst reason for keeping a player in the NHL that i've ever heard.It makes absolutely no sense at all.
