I'm not going to ask you the "have you ever played a team sport" question because I'm assuming you have. I'll just say that you are delusional if you think that the head coach (you know, the guy that designs the system, plays certain guys, takes responsibility for the game plan and preparation) doesn't need to motivate his players.

I'm not referring to Messier-like oratory. I'm talking about being in that locker room as a player and feeling good about the strategy, decisions, and overall direction your coach is taking you in. I'm talking about morale. Stop being a Renney apologist and start realizing that almost EVERYTHING needs to be fixed. This was just the most practical solution.
