God it would be nice to have a normal organization.. one that let their GM pick the coaches, and one that lets their head coach pick the assistants. You would think an experienced coach like Ruff wouldn't take the position unless he could pick his assistants as well.
Kruger needs to go come up with game plans for the Swiss again.
He's not used to NHL hockey enough to try out a big pairing. I was really happy when Tambo traded for Fistric actually, but Kruger still didn't use him.
I hope our next coach gives guys like Peckham, Teubert, and Fistric (maybe) a chance. These guys likely didn't have it for every game this year, but Teubert was a great friend with Eberle and I think playing together would bring some passion back into his game. All guys mentioned are more the style of players needed to help balance out the softness that is our top 6. We love the top 6 guys, but they don't have much edge to their game.
