But, I don't see this horrible attitude you seem to be alluding to, I see a maturity issue. I've seen it several times around teams. What he needs is a lightbulb moment, and a good coach will find that moment at just the right time. Find a way to convince him he'll control the puck more and score more goals if he back checks better, and he'll be one of the better back checkers on the team. He'll work his ass off if it means more goals. You will never convince him to work hard because he has to.
Don't you see laziness and selfishness is part of a bad attitude?
