Tom Renney has been taking a lot of heat ever since the Oilers' strong start fizzled out. Fans and media alike have been very irritated with the amount of ice time, or lack there of, for the three young studs on the team: Hall, Eberle and Nugent-Hopkins. It is fun to watch this young trio play, they are energetic and creative, but I do agree with the conservative approach to their ice time.

On Friday morning as I was watching CNN a line came across on the ticker that caught my attention. It read "putting red line back won't make NHL safe". It has bothered me since I read it.

I always find it hard to be unbiased evaluating a trade when I know one of the players involved. Personal feelings creep in, both good and bad.

Becoming an NHL player is a process. In general, a prospect must work very hard, stay healthy and have some luck on his side to get a chance at a full time NHL roster spot.

Last week Booje asked me this...
"Struds - you need to give us an insider perspective. What role does 'attitude' play in the decisions made by coaches? Are there many attitude problems in the NHL or are they rare?"
