Agree about Mair, but don't dismiss Peters' TKO. Those are player influenced events, though.

Coaches do affect motivation to a degree. Undoubtedly, benching Afinogenov has inspired some people. Dumont seems to be playing very well tonite.

As for benching Tallinder and Campbell, I think some of that is giving us 3 defensemen who can play on the right side. However....Patrick cannot do this every night, due to age. And Delmore will have his defensive lapses.

In terms of motivation thru backup goaltender, you can't use the same reason every night, otherwise it gets old fast.
