I disagree. Was it a cash grab? Perhaps, but I think it has absolutely nothing with our poor start.
People have short memories. We started the 1-5-2, but we only looked bad in one of our losses, the one versus Calgary. Otherwise, they were games that we mostly dominated and should have come out on top.
Should some of our younger players like Emelin, Diaz and Weber have played more? Absolutely. But I really don't think this is why our season is going down the drain.
I really feel that it all comes down to our PP. We went 4/39, which is actually an even worse percentage than what we have now. The PP is still a problem today, 50+ games in, so it's not something that training camp would have fixed, not if we base ourselves on what we've seen.
But generally speaking, yea, lesser games, lesser presence of AHL players, bigger focus on the actual players that will make it, would be a much better approach.
