yeah, as i said in another post, krueger isn't the real problem with this team (although i do believe he should be fired as he clearly doesn't know what he is doing)... the real problem is exactly what you just said above... there are too many 19-22 year old kids being asked to do all the heavy lifting ... there isn't enough veteran support and we are woefully thin at the exact positions you cannot be thin at (centers and top-4 D)

this a poorly constructed team, and that falls on management
