That is, they presume good or great health, and that's the exception more than the rule. Then they get caught with their proverbial pants down, and have to do things like dressing eight defensemen. IMO, that is the major problem. Well, that and I think the coach is a tad over his head at this level.

But, if fully healthy, a top-9 of something like Foligno-Hodgson-Tropp, Adam-Porter-Mancari (when those guys perform as they should), and Girgensons-Varone-Flynn is pretty good at the AHL level.
Perfectly legitimate criticisms IMO. Include Ron Ron. Like the guy, but something about him just seems like he's not ready for this level of competition.
