Yeah he played JFJ on the number line but he said we were small and he needed grit. This was a shot at how our team was assembled and the sad part is it is still the #1 problem.
He did whip Gagner into shape by really busting his balls on being gritty and competing. I think that did alot for Gags development (present 9 game nose dive not included).
Quinn, Randy Carlile and Bruce Boudreau are of that same ilk and that is the type of coach we need, someone who is going to bust these kids chops and not let anyone mail it in.
It's pretty clear you're just speaking from about zero basis. Carlyle and Boudreau couldn't be more different in terms of their approach. Boudreau is a player's coach through and through, Carlyle is the exact opposite of that. Just because you heard Boudreau yelling at his team in the middle of a huge losing streak doesn't mean he's like that. By all accounts he's a pretty easygoing guy that will bend over backwards for his players, Carlyle is grumpy and old-school.
