Ever notice how during every losing streak every coach does all those "stupid" things?
It's a message sending thing. I don't agree with it but they're helpless and facing ridiculous pressure, it's their JOB and their failing at it so they go for safe, veteran players and players who show spunk in practice.
No. Find me another coach that gives a young player duties to shutdown the opposite's top line and then gets benched after they allow a goal. I know coaches that will bench players for making unforced mistakes, and I can agree with that.
What he's done to Eller however is just dumb.
And No. I don't know which other coach keeps the same damn players on the PP despite it clearly not working. I know coaches that will switch things around, try crazy things like putting a scrapper there in order to fix it in any way possible.
