Not sure I completely like or agree with the fact its the coach's decision whether or not a player should be kept. Coach is really focused on current success, and so he should be, but there is a bigger picture that should be taken into account. The GM is responsible to build the current team, but also with one eye to the future. Playing defence as an 18 year old in the NHL is proven to be a tough task and we also have to factor in Reilly lost almost a full year of development last season. These types of things should really be joint decisions. Who knows...maybe another example of Burke telling the fans/media one thing, actually doing another.
