Carlyle is a fine defensive coach who seems to know how to handle young players. But if I have faith in Carlyle, I guess I should have faith in his decisions.
Disagree. He needs to learn to play better in his own end, better he gets a ton of ice time to work on it at the junior level rather than sheltered minutes at the NHL level. We've been down this path before. I'm not even sure he shouldnt be back in junior next year, but I suppose that will depend on how well he does at the next camp.
