So yeah, when a coach and an organization constantly preaches about how important every game and point is, and then they allow a crappy defenseman to look out of place at wing for 2 weeks, it starts to annoy you.
I don't think that a 5'8 Forward who had just 2 games in 8 ECHL-games this season and hasn't played in the AHL for almost two years would've been an upgrade over one of our D playing Forward, especially not if you want a 4th line whose main responsibility it is to be good defensively.
They should bring in some more players, true, but Collins isn't one of them.
