I'm a proponent that you cannot teach instinct and talent but you can learn to play a certain way, you can learn to compete and drive to the net. The players who don't listen, don't belong - and good riddance.
Instinct is your mind knowing what to do without thinking after repetition and success. That play is no different than knowing where to travel on a fretboard. So....instinct can be taught, but self taught. Talent, that's the sum total of effort and ability. One man we can all say disproves the talent paradox? Robert Thor Nystrom.

And he also disproves the "can't teach speed."

I look foreward to Tavares further eroding the negatives from the Tavares/Duchene debate.
