Solid points. That said, these are 21 year old kids who have been told that they are great at something their entire lives. They finally make thier dream happen through talent and hard work and even prove that they belong with some of the best players in the world and to see some special consideration and then are treated to their minutes being cut and then sent down when they can't make magic happen automatically. More minutes more chances easier to score. Instead, in Camms case, less minutes more criticism sent down. (I know there were a waiver or some odd issue but the point stands)
With Frolov you bring out an excellent point. He were doing amazing playing with third line talents like Ebell and earned his shot at the PP and to play with even more talented players and get some more minutes and instead, his minutes didn't go above 15 per game until we got even more banged up and then only to see him play on a line of energy third/fourth line players and he has only seen an increase in his PP time recently and that is still well below what others with his point production are recieving in the league by a margine.
Go to ESPN and look in the stats and then go to some of the players indiviual bios and such. Look at the other 2nd year players (the two that are scoring above him) and thier plus minus and thier minutes and such and you will see what i have.
I hate going on about one player because truly, Frolov isn't our best player in my opinion and I feel Luc is having a great year and all and I hate even more being critical as i much rather fancy cheering our team then having a bash at it but, since this is the kids board and we are talking about them I don't mind saying what I see is happening on it. I feel, that Andy hasn't done a right propper job with any of our kids at all. I feel that he has done the most amazing job ever with our lunch pale types getting the best out of Simm Charty Lappy Tripp Klatt and those types and that he seems to care more about the team and its success then any one of us combined. I just have my one sore point and it seems to me that in that, I don't think that he has done right. Of course, I am no NHL coach or a bloke who has won any gold anythings so I know I am not going to be the one who is right on this one, just my observations and what I see other coaches doing.
