Reasons why:

AV's system is kryptonite to that kind of player. It's based off of extended puck possession, offense off the rush, and quick, cute passes. Cally's good at owning the puck on the boards, but that's it as far as AV hockey goes. It's not a coincidence Callahan, Stepan, and Hags have struggled this year: They're really suited for a North-South style, while a guy like Brass is suited better to it.

Richards: Great on the powerplay, useless elsewhere. Too slow, too soft on the puck, and uninvolved in the play

Hags will be the next to go. It's been made clear that this team has no use or place for a 2-way forward. Only lazy, underachiving, enigmatic, or reclamation players will be accepted at forward.

Except Zucc.
