However, on a quicker team like the Avs, the deficiencies that McGinn has like not being that good at holding onto pucks along the boards and puck play in general, can be covered up a lot better. It's not completely coach-based as it is talent-based.

As for Nichol, he's definitely better this year than last but this year is pretty much what Nichol was the year before in his first year as a Shark. Last year was just a struggle for him and it had nothing to do with the system or how he was used, at least to me.
Exactly on the McGinn point. He also played with Paul Staszny and David Jones for alot of the time.
