I want coaches and players that hate to lose, for sure, but please, hold the circus.
I was at the Chill game when Ruskowski littered the ice with sticks et al. It was awesome. No, I don't believe it made him any more dedicated to winning or passionate about his team, but it was awesome. And hell, if you're not going to win, aren't we entitled to a circus?
