These guys are Pro's. Yes Carbo needs to motivate them, but only to a certain extent. If these guys cant go out every night and be motivated to win, then they are the problem, not Carbo. In the end, Kovalev and company are skating on the ice, not Carbo.
I feel your pain. The same thing is going on in Ottawa right now - the 3rd/4th lines are outperforming our top 2 lines and are not being rewarded.

I caught this game tonight - not a very good effort, indeed. I watched most of the 3rd period (missed the 2nd) and it looked like the Caps ***** were on fire.

The saving grace - it's happening in the first quarter of the season and not the last.
