I also agree with your point about Baumer... let him coach in juniors or something and get some experience before bringing him on board. Nepotism seems to have always been a problem with this organization and who they hire.

Again, I'll reiterate that Arniel needs to stop giving the benefit of the doubt to the veterans merely because of seniority - it's been long overdue; he needs to look at who's actually getting results out there instead of just past records. The strength of the AHL is much different this year compared to years past when those vets were putting up numbers.
Tanev played like 3/4 of the game. Think he looked every bit as good as Smith.
Wolves should have won but have some players that can't score a lick. Also Climie let him some weak goals whereas McCollum was very good.
Sweatt had two open chances and made pathetic efforts. Sweatt is your ultimate "tweener". Lacks hands to be much use offensively and not tough enough or defensively aware enough to be your bottom six. Not sure you are looking to re-sign this player.
Connauton had again his good and bad moments. Made some significant errors late the game that just about lost it. Did however, create more offense than previously Don't know why Connauton is not used n the shoot out.
Schroeder had very good game but still miscued on a number of chances. Close to breaking out but needs to be just that little bit better in converting passes near the net and in putting away chances
Kassain is in the same boat. Doing some excellent things but with a little more touch and focus could be piling up points. Missed some excellent chances in this game.
Rodin back on bench but didn't play in the third. Him and Davies basically sat out most of the latter part of the game.
Friesen was little better but still not ready for this level. Can't do anything with the puck
Meskovic is dreadful and should be replaced by Andersson
