I agree. One of my biggest beefs the last 2 years is the refusal to play the younger players. One example, and I've loved what the guy did for this team, but they trade for and then resign a guy like Johannsson, when they could have been playing younger guys to see how they develop. It's not that those younger guys are better, it's just at this point in his career, Johannsson is what he is. He isn't getting better and won't deliver anything more. So you can playing the older guys or you can play the younger guys to see how they develop. Laviolette chose to play the older veterans instead. Maybe all those young guys suck and won't ever develop, but we may never know. Meanwhile, they trade Burakovsky a few years ago who blossoms in Colorado and kept some of these same veterans they are trading now. Just a lot of bad decisions the last couple of years.
I’m just a casual fan, but guy wins the Stanley Cup I would think you give him whatever the **** he wants We’ve now seen what not giving him everything he wants gets. But again, I’m not knowledgeable about the Caps like you guys so maybe it was more complicated than that.
I like this guy. He's already got a history with a number of young players in the organization, a bunch of which are currently playing for a Calder Cup. Additionally a bunch of those guys had NHL experience this past season because of injuries. Not to mention the first time we're picking in the top 10 in forever.. Could be a quick turn around depending on what Backstrom does.
