Fletcher said he wanted a big strong presence for on the boards in the offensive zone. What isn't there to agree with?
This call up isn't and wasn't a solution if there was a Cullen injury. When/If an injury to an offensive forward(Cullen, Bouchard, Koivu...knock on wood) goes down we will see Zucker wear iron range red and forest green.
If we lose a Clutterbuck or Powe then you will see a guy like Veilleux or Jake Dowell.
Its that simple, you call up the player that fits what you need on your team right now that is Coyle's physical presence to help us establish a forecheck and cycling down low in the offensive zone.
This move was to send a message to underperforming players(Setoguchi, Granlund etc..) And try to light a fire under their arses. Hopefully it will.
