Maybe this attitude is acceptable in the NHL, but I don't know if it will do any good in this league. Keep it behind closed doors.
Here are some quotes from the article that might make you think otherwise:
Guys making the same mistakes over and over. It's like, hey, why would I care for those guys?
What are they doing? 'I'm not listening to the coach. I'm doing my own thing. We put Ben Eaves, we put Christensen, we put Talbot, we put any rookie out there and he doesn't give us what we're expecting. Not once.
There's nothing you can do as a coach. You just wish those guys are going to act, they're going to play hard, they're going to do the things we try to teach them.
Seems like he's trying to teach them, and he's tired of repeating.
