#6 / Defenseman / Florida Panthers
Jun 17, 1982
Speculation over an apparent divide between Florida coach Peter DeBoer and
defenseman forward Ville Koistinen has reached a new low: watching his minutes drop from game to game, he was finally benched for the Panthers' visit to Washington on Saturday.
The Miami Herald reports his two shifts that evening represented a season-low, even following the loss of forward Gregory Campbell to an injury.
On top of the Clemmensen Fiasco, is this yet another case of a coach and his player not reading from the same book?
