It has been seen over the past couple of years with the Cougars that they only play 2 lines of forward and 4 dmen until the game is out of reach or the goal difference is high enough not to worry. They have proven that they only like to develop ten or eleven players on a yearly basis, and then they wonder why these boys are done by the middle of the game. Its called fatigue. If they would only try playing 4 lines and 6 D for the first half of the game and then shortening it if necessary then players wouldn't be getting burnt out. If the Cougars make play offs it will be very hard to go with 2 lines and 4 D. Start developing the other players as well and good things might happen, what can it hurt.
