Hrivik should've been an AHL first liner, but nowhere near that thus year.
Kristo should've been close to a ppg player considering his age and style of play.
When one player has a bad season, it's his fault. When it's the whole team, particularly its creative players, the coaching needs to take the fault.
Those are a whole lot of "should've's" that are hardly based in objectivity. If anyone was 100% expecting a 20 year old to progress to the NHL or two young guys from Sweden to come to a brand new continent with a totally different rink size and playing style and not miss a beat then that's their problem. Not Gernander's problem or the players' problems. Sure, if you want to attribute a bad Hartford team to a general statistical deflation then be my guest. That still does not explain why Hrivik has fewer goals than Ryan Bourque and Darroll Powe despite playing more offensive minutes.
