JR won't fire his best friend this soon and there's no way that PK will agree to paying THREE coaches at the same time. Ronnie, Daniels or Rowe could take over behind the bench, but it would just be more of the same results with the first two. Rowe could kick a few ***** but I'm not even sure if the players would listen to him since he's been in the locker room for a couple seasons now. About the ONLY other thing that could happen is Lavi coming back and with the fallout between JR and Lavi the odds are better that I hit the powerball jackpot.
I'd really like to see Sutter get more minutes in the 3rd period, though unlikely. What ever happened to rewarding players with icetime based on their play? The kid has been good in every game he's been in since we called him up, scored a beauty 'Brett Hull' like one-timer yesterday, a very nice goal today, yet he's been rewarded with 6:27 of ice time through 2 periods. For **** sakes, the kid is showing he can play, we've called him up, and we're giving him limited minutes. What's right about this picture? Oh wait, I forgot, we're a veteran team and those vets are showing first hand they can get the job done. Right.
Edit: Perfect example. To end the PP Maurice puts out Brind'Amour, LaRose & Walker. Why not Sutter? Reward the kid. At this point in time he's been just as good or better than any of those 3 and isn't going to hurt the team any more or any less. I know these 3 just hit a post, but still, my point still stands - Reward the kid for good play and give him ice time for crying out loud.
The SJ tv announcers were saying last period they noticed after every whistle Staal was leaning over as if it looked like he was in some pain. Perfect time to give more icetime to... I dunno... Sutter? Nope, won't happen. Maurice will stick a vet there. Which has to be the logical choice right? Because the vets are playing so good and all. - Yes, i'm a tad pissed off.

it will actually be good for the team if Staal is out for a month or two getting healthy. More losses=better draft pick.
It's either that or Staal told Mo to screw himself.
