Monarchs Insider: Veteran strengthens 'D' (UL Story)

From the Article:

Early in the season Gilmore said the Kings were looking for a big, experienced defenseman.

"Jason fits the criteria we had in mind," said Gilmore. "We're adding experience and size to a defensive corps that lacks size. If we bring in Jason, do we take ice time away from our young guys? Sometimes our young guys are getting more ice time than they should be getting. Denis Grebeshkov and Tim Gleason are logging 22-24 minutes a game. A lot of that comes in three games in three-night settings. You don't want to be playing a second-year pro 22-24 minutes a game in three straight nights. You increase the risk of injury, at some point it hurts their performance. You look at the ice time (Holland) will get and it makes it a little more bearable on them."

Finally, someone in the organization admits that the 3-games in a row INCREASES the risk of injury! I have been saying this all along. The AHL prides itself as being the PREMIER DEVELOPMENT LEAGUE FOR THE NHL yet we have an NHL/AHL GM saying you don't want to be playing a second-year pro 22-24 min a game in three straight nights because YOU INCREASE THE RISK OF INJURY and at some point it HURTS THEIR PERFORMANCE!

Thank-you Kevin Gilmore!!! At least someone in the Kings/Monarchs organization finally had the balls to admit that a schedule loaded with 3-games in as many days increases the risk of injury and hurts the performance of those players they are trying to develop!!!

hasnt it allways been this way KB? I know its been this way since ive been following the AHL. But i agree with you, how bout we take some of these 3 games in a row and 4 games in 5 nights away and add in some more monday,tuesday and thursday night games. back to back games or 3 games in 5 nights at the verey worst.
