Okay, I know personal anecdotes are generally crap but I'm going to share one her. And let me preface this by saying that I'm talking specifically about Hodgson and Ennis because they are so young.

I play a fairly high level of hockey. I play center. I was once awful at face offs but I was given the opportunity to simply ride it out and work on it. Yes I failed frequently but as I did it more and more, I got better. I am now elite on the dot.

So, the point is this. Given that we have all pretty much thrown any Cup hopes for this season in our collective trash bins; why not just let them play? It stands to reason that the more face offs they take, the better they will get and perhaps by next season we won't need to talk about shifting wingers in just to take draws.

Also, Yanic Perreault is retired and I am not aware of any limit on consultant fees. Hire him to show these young guys how its done and maybe it'll help. Its only money, which is no object.
