One doesn't need to wait an entire year to figure that out. As for Sandlak, he's been tried on the PP and PK and enough 5 on 5 to have had his chances. I recall someone saying Lemmon was given enough ice @ 8 minutes a game and NO PP so if Sandlak is playing double that then he's been given way too much time if you use that formula. Other than Gaunce on forward and Jordan/Cardwell on D, there are NO other Bulls players especially vets that have a leg to stand on when griping about opportunities this year. As a matter of fact Coaches have provided far too much of an opportunity to some and the worst Goals For is factual evidence of that. No, I think more shakeup is warranted and ultimately moving out guys that have been given years to produce with little to no results is easily justified. Other teams do it.
YEAH im pretty stupid pp went 2/20 this week and two rookies were the first line out all week (thats really changing it up); regardless though i think it is stupid of people to come on here and call each other out on their opinions; i think everyone can agree that every player in the OHL is good at hockey and when put into a pp situation they should be able to score more than the bulls are no matter if its rookies or vets out there, therefore how about change the pp system. we get very few shots on the pp, look at the dominant teams in the west they just make a few passes, shoot and crash the net (none of this beside the net bs)
And as for the players you mention
You can not say Sandlak (and players like Hooey, Austin, etc.) have been given quality pp chances, what are they supposed to accomplish after the top units have played a minute and a half of the pp... and as for there minutes if lemmon was playing 8 there not much further ahead with all the penalty filled games they have had as of late.
The coaches have provided little opportunity for players other than their favorites whom you mentioned up; thats a fact, pay attention to the games in more detail, take a stop watch and you will realize that
And yes i agree a shake up is necessary for the forwards
