I don't coach, but I think the perfect philosophy is to combine my coaches philosophies....
One of them yells and yells and calls players names and benches everyone and everyone is so scared of him they do what he wants... he's all about offense and thinks defencemen are there just to hit... I don't think that is right
My other coach is a defense first guy... he understands that defencemen have other objectives than to hit and that benching someone is not ALWAYS the right decision... but he is a softie.. he's too nice and everyone sorta takes advantage of him and doesn't listen to him as much (us defensemen listen more bc we respect him)
but I think if you would combine the two and ahve aguy who who gets mad but not too mad.. gets his point across without everytime benching someone.. and understands the importance of a mixture of offense and defence... I think that owuld be a perfect philosophy
