It's hard to be the encouraging guy when you make the decision, mid game to cut a guy's icetime. A lot of coaches prefer using their staff as a buffer bewteen them and the players.
What I am afraid of, and Carbo already does it from time to time, is that instead of talking to them and keeping it down low, he uses the journalists to get his messages through. While the important thing is to get the message through by any means necessary, I will still believe that players might not like that and that it can affect their play. We do know the crowd's reaction to a player especially if openly his coach start criticizing him...... I don't want Carbo to be a player's coach à la Jacques Demers, still, players are like human, a little tap on the back never hurts.....and if it's to make the team better, why not? Even Carbo himself admitted that it's not his strength and he's working on it. If he believes in working on it, he might also understand the importance of it.

If I heard correctly, McGuire from CKAC said that Gainey, contrary to the rumor, is obviously not closed to talk about contracts during a year. He reminded the journalists that he did it for Streit last year. So Gainey said that every year is different and surely this year is really different from previoius years as well....but that's all he said.
So without saying he'd try to sign some guys, clearly you understand that since this year is REALLY different, that he will make some attempts.
