Diva's post referenced Trotz's insistence that players strive to do the little things right ... aka "detailed" hockey ... and that they at least attempt to fill their role in the defensive end. Some of our fan base considers that sucking the offensive talent out of players. Heaven forbid that a coach expect a player to actually put forth a little effort in every area of the game, including those that they may not excel in.
