    Insists on playing Jay Bouwmeester with Alex Pietrangelo. Or really at all honestly.

    After years of hating Claude Julien, I really don’t have anything to complain about with Cassidy.

    With Julien, it basically came down to an unbelievably strong unwillingness to make adjustments when things weren’t working. No roster or line changes at obvious times.

    It was especially bothersome in playoff series, like against the Habs in 2014.

    Quinn: Play Filip Chytil with Cody Mcleod and give him less then 10 minuets of ice time
    Besides that I'm happy so far with him, big improvement over Av

    • Constant line blender, even if it means breaking up a very strong line.
    • Scratching performing players or young players who are in a slump, but persisting with underperforming favourites (Melker Karlsson, Dylan Demelo in the past).
    • Awful at coaches challenges.
    • Giving older, slower players way too many minutes at the expense of younger performing players.

    Short lease for rookies and guys with actual potential, long leash for guys who continuously make mistakes.

    He definitely favours veterans a tad more.

    I think Green's alright though.

    Bednar...granted Sakic's given him a pretty **** group of bottom nine forwards to work with, but man does he love his grinders. Nieto, Bourque, Calvert, yes please! Because the #1 powerplay unit has been struggling and or because Jost got injured, he's recently had Matt Calvert out there on it. The guy has to be one of the least skilled players in the league with the puck, and he's sitting in the slot on the top powerplay unit.

    For Babcock it's overly strict line matching at home. The team plays better on the road and I think that's probably the biggest reason why. By doing that you're letting the other team dictate the game and often play defensive players too much at the expense of the offensive stars.
