As a fan, I'm always impatient for prospects and young players to get their NHL chance. Come on, give the guy a chance! Call him up! NHL coaching staffs are pretty much the exact opposite, in that they play the weathered veterans shift after shift.
Why? We're getting an excellent lesson in "WHY?" from Derek Roy these days.

Early in the season one of the lone bright spots for the team was the play of the Gordon line. The 4th line that wasnt the 4th line was spectacular. The Oilers started tinkering with it for some reason and they lost a little of what made them effective, but Rob Klinkhammer has seemingly made that line whole again.

I like Todd Nelson as a coach, and strongly suspect that the combination of a new coach and an influx of new personnel did good things to a team that seemed to be badly in need of some fresh air.
With that said, the team’s current 3-1-2 run under Nelson is built on things that are not going to last.
