They shelter the kids when warranted, but give them enough confidence to go out and do their thing.

A lot of it has to do with the way Maclean talks about "NHL players" and how it takes them about 300 games to really figure out their place - thats about 4 years.

Credit to the Murrays who also recognize that most players don't really "break out" or show their mettle until their 3rd year in the league.

Patience really is a virtue and I'm just glad that our guys have it in spades
Long overdue, these guys deserve some appreciation.
