i think it is within the fans right to boo them .

From rest of his tweets that I read last night, he looks butt hurt that his bro was scratched so long. Either that, or he is trolling Twitter. :laugh:

That seems like a pretty volatile thing to say about the team your brother plays for. I bet it gets deleted if it picks up media traction.

Dylbot 02-26-2012 01:11 PM

NHL players shouldn't need motivating.

ForzaZuffa 02-26-2012 01:11 PM

He's right, there's seems to be no motivation at all, the fire is out, there's no fight in them and I think it boils down to the coach

Deebo 02-26-2012 01:12 PM

If an NHL player needs a coach to motivate them, they aren't much of a professional.

Yep. Agree or disagree with him, total amateur thing to do, particularly when the team your talking about is the Leafs. I'd be pissed if I was Armstrong.

1) player should be self-motivated.
2) yes fire is gone time for a change
3) glad they booed those bums off the ice.

I like Armstrong very much as a player. Under Wilson his confidence has been destroyed, the same way he has done it to Schenn, Kadri, the Monster,etc. What this team needs is 10 players with the heart of Colby and his grit. Problem is Wilson loves to play turn-the-other-cheek hockey, and he has conned Burke into filling the team with soft, pretty skating players.

Phion Keneuf 02-26-2012 01:13 PM

He said it would be nice if Colby could be trraded to a contender.

I agree that the coach should know how to motivate their players but there is no way any player on this team is getting a free pass after this losing slump. The fans had a right to boo, losing 4-0 at one point in one of the most important games of the year. Armstrong after the morning skate was talking about how important this game was to them. To me it didn't seem important to anyone, no sense of urgency...

RT: @JSportsnet- For all those asking, there is no chance that Brian Burke is even contemplating a change behind the bench. #SNtrade

Being in a Playoff Race should be motivating enough.
Looks like they are playing scared to me.

Armstrong is pretty much as effective injured as he is when he is playing

Particularly in a game against a team you are fighting tooth and nail with to get into the playoffs, at home, with a little over a month left in the season. If you can't motivate yourself to play in a game like that, you shouldn't be playing hockey.

Thanks to the OP for posting (been wondering what he posted). I have to agree with the above.

Wow. What an idiot.

Are you serious?

FrozenJagrt 02-26-2012 01:19 PM

NHL players are human too. Humans need motivating. If things don't go well in the workplace and your boss or supervisor can't show any leadership or come up with a way to solve the issues, should he still have his position? I'd say no.

There is a clear lack of leadership from the coaching staff and team of captains. There needs to be a change. The coach may choose to throw a certain player (Reimer, for example) under the bus, but how long can you blame the players for such a horrid stretch of hockey when the only constant in the past few years of failure has been the coach? It seems that no matter what players are brought in, this team cannot perform at a high level and I would certainly think a coaching change should at least see them play a bit more competitive.
