Even then, Yakupov gets ample powerplay time and for the most part has played in the top-six this season. Ruining young players? The best way to do that is to throw them to the wolves. Gagner has been a defensive disaster his whole career but what is Krueger supposed to do when they're down two goals? Throw CVV or Belanger out there with Hemsky? If Tambellini wasn't Tambellini then we'd have a more balanced lineup.

What did you expect this season when the only additions to the roster were Yak and JSchultz? I didn't like the Krueger hiring initially but there hasn't been enough reason to fire him based on the roster. Not even close.

Coaches are always the scapegoat.
I think you need to look at this and explain the bolded.
