In short, nothing surprises me with this guy's handling of youth and we're not off to a good start. AT ALL.

Before anyone brings up ''ok but what about PIT?'' Crosby and Malkin were stars the minute they stepped onto NHL ice. Letang really only took off under Bylsma. The one I'll give him credit for is Staal at 18, but it's not like it was some amazing discovery, he was the #2 pick in the draft.
What's the issue here?
I know there's no reason to bench Eller, but your post is contradicting.
You're saying Therrien is bad with youth. But he's benching Eller to give Galchenyuk his own line to center, and Gallagher a shot at the 3rd line. We're talking about a 18yo and a 20yo. lol
