That's a completely reasonable position to have. He makes mistakes, and I don't think he's some perfect super-coach, but I'm so sick of hearing about how stupid he is or about how he doesn't know what he's doing, especially when those complaints revolve around his management of the youth, which I think he's done a great job with so far. His work on the PP is absolutely disgusting, his TOI management with certain players is questionable, but he gives the young guys a chance and he's had some young players really blossom while he's been here. I think he's handling CK just fine and I think Miller has shown the guts necessary to stay in the NHL while CK hasn't. He can still be a great player, he's not just ready for this league yet.
