Krueger has made some curious, or flat out poor, choices on which defensemen to dress some nights. The special teams, especially the penalty kill, have been bad. That’s on coaching to an extent. But, of course, some of those issues are caused by roster problems. I maintain that a 50-point player, ideally a center but not necessarily, to play with Skinner, has this team in a playoff race at the very least. That’s 100% on Botterill, and I think it will cost him his job.
As an aside, I’ll never know for sure if it was them or not, but before I ever heard that record, I stumbled upon a band playing a little joint in New York City that had that instrumentation and was mesmerized. No idea if in fact it was Morphine, but I sometimes like thinking about it so thanks for jogging my memory.
Thank you all very much for the questions. I tried to respond on Twitter to those that didn’t make it to the web site. We’ll do it again soon if you’re all up for it.
