He sees it, it's just clearly they don't have much else to turn to.

I'm wiling to give this team, as currently constructed another 5 games. What will really be the tipping point for me is when we see Hagelin return. If we still parade out these fairly useless hockey players while we have alternate options available, I'll really have to start thinking about who is in control of player personnel and who is actually making the final decisions about who plays each night( coach vs. gm.)
Like I said above, I feel like this game, where they get 3 days away from games and time to practice will be the point we see the youngsters moving up to the NHL. AV knows Pyatt and is playing him more than he should, but what alternative is CURRENTLY in the NHL? Would you rather see Dom Moore, Asham, or Dorsett in the top 6? There are top 6 spots open currently. Bring up Kreider and Miller and see where it goes. Play them big minutes. When Nash and Hags come back, play them still. You need 3 lines that are threats, and even the 4th has to chip in. Why does Kreider and Miller have to play top 6? Did we not develop Artie and others on the lower lines before moving up? He learned to play in the NHL by playing there, not in an inferior league.
