I can only hope that that is sincere sentiment. Too often players get a free pass because they scored a goal in a game or got two assists and similarly, they can be unfairly lambasted for not scoring for a stretch of time. There's so much more to the game than that.

As a coach, I've told a player after a game in which he scored a hat trick that it wasn't his best effort and told him what needed to be improved and how...similarly, I've told a goalie after a shutout what he could do better to make his life easier and his defense's easier...

It's not to be disparaging or a "hard ass" or anything...I give out raves and rants just comes down to, "this happened during a game and it shouldn't..." Or "even though you didn't were by far our best player tonight" It's what you see, not what Billy Beane reads...
