I guess we define opportunity differently. I don't consider Redmond sitting in the press box u til an injury happened an opportunity. I thought he earned more with his play you may disagree and that's fine.

I'm all for young guys earning opportunities but it seems that they have to do far more than a veteran to earn them. What more could Redmond realistically do in the AHL to earn a chance to play.

I'm fine with Scheifele being sent back, just wish management would have made the decision quicker. It really seemed like they dragged it along too much and may have messed with his psyche needlessly.
If it shouldn't have taken an injury, who should they have sat for him? Buff, Hainsey or Postma?

Hainsey and Stu were asked to do some heavy lifting, they were together out of necessity. I would gave been fine with Redmond stepping in for Clitsome, but Redmond is right handed and neither he or Postma should be burried in their first start.

He earned a roster spot, but no amount of earning creates a spot for a 4th right handed defender.

Speak of the devil, Beauty goal. He is playing great.

I would have sat Clitsome, and paired Redmond with Hainsy and put Postma with Stuart. I would have had Enstrom and Buff take the tough and then I'd have Ron and Zach take middle minutes with Stuart and Paul taking the softs. My point is that there were options available to Noel that didn't involve overplaying a veteran. I want to adapt as a coach and be more flexible. This team long term is only going to go as far as our youth will take this and to do this I think we need a coach like McLean who isn't afraid to try young players in more advanced roles.

No surprise at Zach's play, he was the best player all year for St. John's.
