You might but there's a reason screamers don't have a long shelf life in the NHL. You scream at your players too much and eventually they tune it out.
Sure. And even Pat Burns said as much that he was not the sort that could be with the same team too long. Guys with emotion are usualy tough guys and they need gritty emotive players to be on their teams. That is why Burns had a strong relationship with Doug Gilmour as Dougie was pure heart and soul and he didn't like guys that were not giving their all like him on the ice. When the coach was screaming he was probably standing by him and thinking "he's right". Sort of like when Keenan was with the NYR and Messier was his Centurion in Chief.
