I know Snow and Capuano read this board and I'm hoping they can circulate this to the players.
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
. 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.
