The Connolly disaster you mention was probably the best example of the mistakes Hay made.
Spott's a controversial figure in Kitchener for sure but he knows not to mess with a players style of play, play to your strengths not to what your coach thinks you should do. Murphy was dammed if you do dammed if you don't last year, he clearly wasnt' comfortable playing what Hay wanted him to do (
I'd much rather have Murphy in
that Russian game than Harrington
), and if he played his own game Hay wouldn't have picked him anyway because he didn't listen. It's nice to have a coach who'll tell him to play like he does best.
What do you have against Harrington anyway? You ripped him apart last year when he made the team, yet he was exceptional at shutting down top lines throughout the whole tournament.
I'm not trying to sound like a **** here, just trying to figure out why you think he should not be on the team.
