behind Max Kaminsky of all centers.
Haynes was serviceable on so-so teams. Eddie Gerard, Cecil Hart systems fit his limited talents. Your coach is Bun Cook, old Ranger.
Forecheckers - you do not have enough forecheckers who can skate well enough. Todd Marchant and who else - perhaps Jimmy Ward? Jimmy Roberts was used in a trailer role by the Canadiens, Vanek is not known as a strong forechecker, Sands, as a winger, and Sandford benefitted from the smaller Boston rink.
With the exception of Brad Marsh the Orfuns defensemen can move the puck very effectively or better.
Yeah, Haynes was dumped... And then went on to be on of the best playmakers in the league over the next half decade.
Forecheckers would be...
Haynes and Ward on the first line.
Smith, Sandford, and Wiseman on the second line.
Sands, Gilmour, and Sullivan on the 3rd line.
Marchant, Roberts, and Maloney on the 4th.
There is no shortage of forechecking forwards on Zambia.
