Phil Varone Is Still Expected To Lead Rochester

Posted By: Lisa Donovan on 8/2/2015

Phil Varone posted 61 points in 2013-2014, but only posted 44 points in 2014-2015. Buffalo mortaged some draft picks that they could have used on prospects to build around Jack Eichel and as a result Varone remains the only asset on the Americans.

Rochester made the 2014 Calder Cup Playoffs. The Americans failed to build on that success by missing the 2015 Calder Cup Playoffs. Rochester has to get back to their roots in 2015-2016. Varone cannot carry this team alone, but at the same time going from 61 points to 44 points is completely unacceptable.

Rochester can put faith in Varone, but the Americans will only be as good as Varone. If Varone disappoints again in 2015-2016, then Rochester will look for leadership elsewhere.
