Yeah like Brodziak, Stoll, Greene, Torres, Penner.

At least it sounds like MacT will have the guts to make some moves and not be afraid of the consequences but he hardly blew me away in his time as a coach of being able to get the best out of some players and simply dumping them if they even once got in his dog house.
Do you honestly think it was up to the coach to say, "Hey Kevin, lets package Greene and Stoll for Visnovsky?"

I get that the coach has some input, but to the extent you suggest is a stretch.
