I really don't buy into all the Dan Cleary hate. What does he need to do? He is a secondary scorer who has been doing just that.
Do you not watch the games? Cleary falls down and turns the puck over whenever someone breaths on him. Add in the turnovers due to his brick hands and its just a recipe for disaster. 11 points while playing with the teams top player and getting top 6 minutes is not secondary scoring. Its 3rd/4th line grinder production.
This has been considered before. Buying into it anymore?
“If we need forwards, Riley Sheahan deserves a chance, Landon Ferraro, we’ve got Tomas Tatar, Gustav Nyquist, Joakim Andersson, Damien Brunner,..." per Kenny.
Uses the word "deserves". Makes me think he wants the young guys up now.
Also, Dan Cleary would have been sat by 29 other coaches at some point this year.
If Kenny wanted them in the lineup they would be in the lineup. Babs controls the lineup but Kenny controls the pool of players that lineup is picked from.
