    Je had iets kunnen zeggen. = You could have said something. (But you didn't say anything!)

    Je zou 't mogen doen = Conditional sentence. You could do it. (If you want to; it's allowed to do it)

    Je had 't moeten doen. = You should have done it. Again, the same type of expression like in the first sentence. you *should* have done it, but you didn't do anything.

    Does this clear it up?
