Forsbergs biggest problem is he plays for a coach who has no idea how to develop players. Dean Clark is a cavern of huge potential gone bust. Some highly touted players under his tenure as a WHL coach? Pavel Brendl, Kris Beech.

Players who have flourished under his tenure then went onto a good NHL career? Maybe Eric Fehr is as close as you can come.

That from a coach with 12 years in the WHL.
