Third, I would image it would piss me off to a great extent; the unfairness of Coyle playing on the top-line while being oneself scratched, and considering the "ok-ish" game Coyle had really does not warrent him on the top-line yet, in my opinion.
Fourth: Not that I really follow what Granlund says in the media much, but from the little information I have gathered, it seems as if he is a player who just enjoys to be able to play the game. Scratching him now could hurt his confidence even more.
At first the whole "fire Yeo" thing seemed silly to me, but if he actually scratches Granlund, I feel more inclined to agree with that sentiment.
Don't worry there will be another "fire yeo" thread in this season. Seems to me like he is way over his head.
