Hendricks came in and played hard last night but I doubt he will do it again after half the team mailed it in. The players have given up and that is on them. Don't get me wrong it is also on the coach and GM as well, I just don't think the players are giving 100% right now.
Agreed, however I don't believe the players are listening to the coach anymore. Any resistance in any game is met with indifference. This falls on MacT's shoulders for hiring yet another rookie coach who wasn't ready for the NHL. It should be noted Buchberger and Smith should not have been retained. I will state the worst part is the players not sticking up for one another. One of the kids needs to be traded to send a message that this kind of b.s. is not going to be tolerated anymore.
