There's no question in my mind that Simmonds has the all-around ability to be a top line player in this league.
I hear you...I struggle with it but it's a close call. I do concur Murray never gave it a chance but that is par for the 3 year course, to date.

While I will agree that Murray didn't give Simmonds a chance to really solidify himself on the first line, I also don't think Simmonds' play at any time this season (consistently I mean, outside of just a game here and there) has really warranted being a 1st line winger.

if anything it seems everyone IS in agreement with is TMu's constant line juggling. imo he never gives the guys time to develop the timing and chemistry. 1, 2, 3 games max and then he gets another wild hair up his ass and flips the lines again. it's no wonder there is a general lack of overall offensive chemistry on the team. players need the time to learn each others consistencies, moves, speed, timing, pass/shot preferences, etc. that doesn't just happen in a handful of games or practices. it takes weeks, months if not longer to develop.

players look for consistency in many things. give a guy a constant message and time to develop most times it works for the positive. if not then why do you think they send players to the AHL for 1-3 years, to get that time and consistency to develop. they arrive in LA and suddently TMu expects miracles in a week. TMu's message and approach ISNT consistent when it comes to developing players, especially young players.

i agree with others that Parse will be the next player tagged as ineffective and moved along. will Moller ever get his just due? will Loki get more than a glimpse this time around? only TMu's wild ride of a mind can answer that, the rest of us can only ponder

Agree. I had high hopes for Simmonds this season and he has dissapointed. I'm struggling to find one part of his game that screams future #1 RWer. He looks more like a 3rd liner energy player than somebody who's going to put up nice point totals. From now on it's probably up to him how far he develops in the NHL and that includes lving a healthy, clean lifestyle, training hard in the offseason and improving his overall game. He could also be the victim of being a round peg in a square hole as far as the offenive system Murray uses. On a different team would Simmonds excel with more offensive creativity allowed by the coach?
