Effort doesn't equal scoring and scoring wins games, not effort. You of all people are well aware of this.

Plenty of players play half-assed and score, and some of our players play 150% and can't score. Get people who CAN score. THEN worry about effort.

But I think what he did with Redden is what he does best as a coach. He challenges people to be better...and when he challenges one of the highest paid players, it puts the rest of the roster on notice that they could very easily be next.
That is what he does best. But Wade Redden won't dramatically improve and neither will the rest of the team. It's not like these players have a third gear they just aren't entering. This is all they have. That talk about 9-20 goal scorers in the beginning of the season was laughable then and even more laughable now.
