Hmm it seems to me like he played harder minutes last year and ended up at 47%. Maybe it's because of our injuries he's had to take more draws then normal and isn't getting protected.

Not sure why after every practice we don't have all forwards spending 15-20 minutes working on draws.
Well Horcoff is also a faceoff vet (his shoulder injuries have hurt his numbers) but him and Belanger are two good faceoffs vets, if they can't teach the kids then maybe they're just not very good at faceoffs?

Not everyone can make an immediate impact like Adam Oates did. I wish though.

As for the Belanger comment yeah sure but clearly he isn't teaching the kids anything. Or else RNH and Gagner aren't smart enough to take notes.
Well he went from 41% in his rookie year up to 47% last year, one bad year in the middle and this season is far from over. I'd like to think that he can bring it up a bit and isn't suddenly a 40%< on the dot.
