I don't like jumping to go negative on a coach. It usually takes me a while.
So I'll first say I understand why Willie is playing to win, and besides his run ins with the OKC Barons, he's done an excellent job of turning these guys into a very good team.
I don't like that he's not exactly prospect-centric in a developmental league .... but I think it's impossible to say Austin Smith should be characterized has quiet in the AHL when he really hasn't been given any opportunity other than on the 4th line.
I personally believe the time in the ECHL was great for Smith, and there is no reason this guy should be playing limited minutes in the AHL from this point forward.
