Injuries are killing this clubs chemistry.
If LAVY is soooooooo bad, WHY do our players try and come back earlier than expected to try and help turn things around ?
Hartnell playing with plates and screws, Mez, Read, etc etc. Losing can cause some bad emotions to stir up in folks, not just in Hockey but all kinds of endeavors including marriages etc......Want gutter snipe media hacks reporting on your family ? marriage ? etc ?..........I try and take most things that the media report on with a grain of salt.
and what does one have to do with the other. the players want to win and they want to help out their team. you can't be an NHL player without being competitive. what does that have to do with laviolette's coaching ability? maybe one could argue that they came back a little early cause they like lavy and want to make his job easier but that has nothing to do with his ability as a coach.
and yes every locker room has arguments and so on but do you really think that they are reported every time? obviously not cause we'd be hearing about it every day. stories get written when things are worse then they normally are. i will agree that the philly media likes to twist things around which is why i never blamed Richards when he was here but how can you say this is a non issue. when you have so many long term pieces in place, you can't have these issues when the team is losing. good teams argue but come together when the going gets tough. I'm not going to say that i have any real experience in the matter but i did play team sports until the age of 18 (both hockey and football). our football team was literally the worst team i had ever been apart of and we only won a single game in my junior year and two my senior year but we didn't start pointing fingers or blaming one another. again that's not to say we didn't have arguments but we sure as s*** didn't have locker room "issues" like Couturier saying saying people show up to play some days while others don't that's just not acceptable.
