Funny how Yak in his rookie season, the strike shortened one where they only played the tougher west teams, had arguably his best year, 31 points in 48 games and only a -4. But that was under the coach that Edmonton should have kept, Ralph Krueger. But then Krueger knew how to utilize Yak's strengths while working on his weaknesses, like a good coach should. It was only after Krueger was canned and the rolling debacle that was the OIlers train took off down the tracks that he regressed so horribly. Edmonton also played Justin Schultz out of his safe zone after that and wrecked him as well, but now he has two cups. Maybe Yak needs a team where he can find his niche while he works it out.
