He asks back though, as he's hard on work ethic and effort in practices, which I assume why Avtsin hasn't played a lot this year. If he doesn't like what he sees in the morning skate from a player, said player won't play.
Thanks for the input, I have a completely different picture of him as a coach, last year he got into shouting matches with some of the players on the Avs (especially O'Brien) and the way he managed their defense left a lot to be desired, I just hope he puts it all together for the sake of our kids in Hamilton.
