I didn't say you disagreed. I said that a good coach isn't going to look at faceoff stats and accept his team is sitting at 50% and be ok with it, because it is a league avg.

I hate him with a passion, but Rinaldo's the kind of 4th liner I wish Tanner Glass was. A hitter who teams actually have to be aware when he's on the ice.

Rinaldo, Tootoo, that kind of guy I'd take in a heartbeat over whatever the heck Glass is supposed to bring to the table.

Yeah, the Isles kinda caught fire, but unlike the '92 club, they just couldn't battle back from adversity. That's the kind of definition of flawed, right there.

They weren't as bad as the 85 Flyers, though, but I think that team's defeat in the playoffs wasn't as out-of-the-blue as people think.
