Then you have Yakupov, our next best sniper (he will be even better, I'm sure). He's playing his best hockey and no longer a huge liability, and he gets benched when we need him the most. Not only that, but benched after perhaps one of his best shifts in the NHL so far. WTF is Ralph doing? Is he trying to suck the life out of Yakupov? Yakupov has the best shot on the team, we need goal, and he benches him... Just horribad coaching, and that's being fair about it.
True enough, but what were we expecting? This from the management team that hired Mact clones in Renney and Krueger. Krueger was here during the deflowering of Paajarvi as he disappeared into the Belanger triangle. Some people would have you believe that this was actually "good" for his development.

Krueger is playing to save his job. Nothing more.
