Check out what Feaster had to say about his prospects,
Through the media — and quite possibly in person — he gave the boys a blast.
“Obviously, a difficult way to end,” said Feaster. “I asked (coach Troy Ward), ‘
Is it an organizational disease? What is it?’ We have to find a way to eliminate it. This has been the M.O.
since I’ve been in Calgary — win a couple of games and then we decide we can just throw the sweaters out (on the ice).
“We played 20 minutes. We had a chance to leave here with three wins. That would have been good. For 40 minutes we just played shinny.
And I don’t understand it. It’s not unique to this group. Unfortunately, it’s something that happens with the big club, too.”
It's basically the polar opposite of what Mac T had to say about the tournament, being a "shinny game" out there and he put no stock in it. What was the mandate coming from the top? Our rookies were absolutely abysmal. Was that due to a lack of effort, or was it merely a lack of skill?
Eakins is trying to instill what you may lack in skill, you can make up in effort.
Our prospects in the later rounds are not progressing, there's no gem in the bunch. Is this an organizational handicap? Do they need to be whipped into shape mentally a lot earlier?
I don't think MacT should be doing anything Feaster does.
