I think there a number of things to keep in mind... Byfield and Kaliyev are 18 and 19 years old and ordinarily wouldn't even be allowed to play in this league. That's 2/3 of your top line. Other teams top scorers are 24-28 years old with years of AHL and NHL experience. The Kings have made a deliberate effort to focus on "development" and in this season there is no benefit to icing a team or coaching that team to do whatever it takes to win. I have every confidence that Wroblewski and the players WANT to win every game but if the goal of the Ontario Reign was to win every game no matter the cost I believe you would see a very different roster construction and deployment than we've seen. See previous paragraph. The D corps was disrupted with the untimely departures of Walker and Roy for the Kings as well as the injury to Hults. We've been watching a Reign team without Clague, Strand, Bjornfot, Alt and Hults for most of their games. I'm not trying to make any excuses for this team... watching them lose when we've all been looking forward to the young guns popping off is excruciating and annoying. I just think a little patience is warranted.
