I made the point in the other thread, motivation and energy isn't always a conscious thing. We saw it last year, coaching turmoil, lack of togetherness can destroy the heart a team plays with.
I think there's several players playing their ***** off for coach MacLean this year that wouldn't have under Cory Clouston..and it may not have been because they would
Yeah, I don't think it's a big secret that the room isn't the best, which is kind of surprising giving how many "good guys" there are on the team, and local boys with passion for DIF. Also, lots of the same guys who played for them in the finals the other year. Losing always have that effect, I guess.
But sure, there are lots of factors that "helps" Mika in this case, it isn't all him, hopefully. But then again, at some point, you gotta look at him.
