It would be UTTERLY RIDICULOUS to evaluate a major motivational technique after ONE game (and you know it).

The writing assignment was given after the Kings had lost 5 straight, giving them a record of 3-10-1.

After that, they went 37-17-10 to finish the season 40-27-11.

IT WORKED, and you sound more and more ignorant each time you deny it.

I also note that my question from post #47 in this thread has not been addressed by any of you naysayers:

Not being antagonistic. I'd really like to know.
