The strongest critique of Tmac has to be this (and Fatass/Murray).

Last year, it was understandable when he gave both these players ice time: it was reasonble to think that this players would trend back to where they were...and when they didn't, San Jose didn't have any other options (until after the TDL, whn Handzus sat).

Now, he should not only know what he has in these players, but he also has the pieces to easily replace them in the lineup. There are 6 defensemen in this organiation that Murray has no business playing over; arguably, Irwin makes it seven. Handzus might justify fourth-line ice time, but he has no business on the third line...
