Look at Beleskey. He was a much better player for Anaheim. He was barely an upgrade over Lucic this season. I look at Florida and Tampa and see how they have been able to get much more out of young players and it is clear that Julien's system and approach is outmoded.
You want another prediction? If they stick with Julien, they'll be looking up at Buffalo in the next couple of seasons. That team is young and growing in confidence and if Vesey heads up there to play with Eichel, well, watch out.
Postscript: You do know that Cam Neely openly wondered on Felger and Mazz how Reilly Smith could fail here in Boston and yet flourish in Florida. He publicly admitted that he has thought about it. You think maybe he's wondering if it has to do with the coach? Hmm?
And Phil Kessel, FYI, has a goal and an assist in today's game against the Rangers. Sure, who needs him when you can have Jimmy Hayes or Lee Stempniak.
