Petry would be the 1st line RD on most team. Hard to blame him for playing behind Weber.</div></div>
He wouldnt be on our team either....or STL, COL, LAK, SJS, CAR, VAN, EDM, BOS, NYR, NYI....Do I have to go on???

The only thing that I didn’t like that he did is the Kevin Hayes trade a year ago. This offseason was not really his fault either:
Jacob Trouba : was as good as gone anyways
Tyler Myers: 6 years 6 million is way to much for him
Ben Chiarot: would have love to have signed him but got outbidded by an extra 500k per year
Buff: completely screwed us over and we can’t make any moves until he officially retires or comes back.
Tanev: way to long of a deal
Paul however should be moved on from in my opinion. We have had one maybe two good season with him as coach, simply not good enough. He can’t get the most out of his players, especially the bottom six, it’s been brutal. He constantly plays pylon scrubs who belong in the AHL other than young and promising players ( Bitetto instead of niku, Bourque instead of vesalainen most recently) are a few reasons why he should be gone in my opinion</div></div>
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Spleenmaster1002</b></div><div>Agree, there’s **** all Chevy could do with Buff’s situation, who IMO is the reason we’re in this position right now. If he had gotten surgery/started rehabbing right when the season ended, then we’d have a healthy Buff in October/November. If he didn’t want to play, he should’ve then retired immediately, and then Chevy could play around with an additional $7.6M. But now, we’ve got $7.6M in unusable cap with Buff giving no indication whether he is coming back or not. Chevy has had to dumpster dive to try to find any semblance of defensive depth.</div></div>
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>bnormie46</b></div><div>No coach will improve an AHL caliber team. When we lost all those players or when Buff left, Cheveldayoff should have went out and got players but instead replaced the whole d core with AHL players. You don’t win games with a roster like that in the second half of the year no matter who the coach is.</div></div>
Yes, Byfuglien screwed Chevy on the cap but if you leave him on LTIR, with no other injuries, this team is actually ok.
The reason why I say this is that we would be in a playoff spot if we had Lowry, Little and Poolman all year. Come TDL, we would know if Buff was coming back and we could trade for a top 4 RD if he wasnt.
