THIS x1000. But I think it had a lot to do with the locker room too. If you remember nearly every postgame the guys were 100% behind Moose and refused to blame Moose. Even when it was clearly Moose's fault, they refused to blame Moose. Finally, even when Moose blamed himself the guys refused to blame Moose.
So maybe Pete thought that since everyone was rallying around Moose his best chance to maximize their play was with Moose on the ice (even if he was terrible). He probably thought that Kinkaid/Frazee weren't that much of an upgrade, so why not just roll the dice with Moose?
I can see that logic. I still wish the kid got a shot.
