A year ago you thought well of Teubert. Now he's chicken**** because, well, we need some theory on why the kids are not allright.

Theres no way this Barons club should be playing worse than it was last year. What it suggests is that some of our wonderkids don't really add as much to the equation as some people think. That even in the case of an AHL club their net benefit is in the red.

Its easy to see the flash in their game, their talents, but the allround game is seriously lacking and they're being exposed every other game for being substandard in ownzone or NZ play.

With the help of Schultz(who's out there with the stars anytime they get a chance) this unit should be tilting the ice on every shift. On a lot of them they are. When they're running around not even touching the puck..

ps I think we flatter ourselves if we think every AHL team has us pegged as their SC dream opponent. We're in 9th place in the conference. We'd be worse without loser pts.

I don't doubt that some career AHLers like kicking the kids in the junk because they can. But should it be this easy?
