I can see, though, that his lack of production could warrant a change. However, I don't think he's being ineffective out there (not being in on the forecheck, turning pucks over, missing his d coverage, etc.).
Coyle is doing just what the Wild brass brought him up for. Plus he is getting stronger and better each game.

I see no reason to move him from the 1st line at this time, but if he goes thru a stretch where he is not cycling, controling down low, fore/back checking hard, then maybe a trip back to the AHL. But he is doing just fine right now.
