My biggest problems with Hartley stem from his playing favorites. He's far too reluctant to play rookies like Coburn while letting Devo soak up far more minutes than he's currently capable. He will not allow lines to develop any sense of cohesion or chemistry, and I have no idea when the last time Moose started a game. No, Waddell went bargain shopping for centers and wings, but I'm not convinced that Hartley's done the best he can with what he has.
It's after the all-star break. We're about to find out what kind of team this one really is. I'm very afraid we're not going to like the reality.
