I will go ahead an predict that he WILL NEVER be "Great" while playing here, he will be just average thanks to the system.
Can you explain what defensive responsibilities are restricting him in this system? I'll save you the trouble, they're aren't many for a winger. You can make that statement on a center in Trotz's system but not the wingers, that I can see.
Radulov did hit the doghouse at first because he had issues with chasing the play in the defensive zone, which allowed teams to easily cycle the puck with no winger covering the point. Every team would have an issue with this.
Wilson's early issues with Trotz were trying to hang on to the puck too long in the neutral zone and turning it over. Every team would have an issue with this
So what are Forsbergs issues defensively that wouldn't be there in another system?
