If the coach is not trusted or liked .... What happened in Washington this season could happen to any other team.
I don't want Pominville to "go after" Ruff or any coach. But I DO want him to approach the coaching staff after games and discuss what's on his mind and debate a strategy or philosophy.
It's not really about the captain going after the coach. I doubt Briere or Drury did that. It's about being willing and able to challenge decisions made by Lindy if the captain thinks they're wrong or it could be done a different way. Purposely picking a sheep that will go along with any of your decisions is pathetic.
