We have a game tonight and I would be extremely surprised if we don't come out guns a blazin knowing the guys on my team.

I know it's not nearly the same, but sometimes when your team is going through the motions you need to wake them the f up. Duchene stepping up to do that is showing that he has passion and though some don't think so, future leadership qualities.

He just needs to mature and learn a better way to approach it.
The only issue I have with his comments are the same as the coaches, he needs to step it up also. If you're not playing at a high level, how can you expect others to follow your lead by words only? Words with action would be the best way for him to lead by example.
