it is much easier for him to carry this philosophy with a rebuilding team than a cup contending team.
also i dont recall the last time a team has had their captain a healthy scratch. maybe someone can find that.
You have to get that philosphy engraved in their heads while they are still NHL newbies. Veterans aren't going to respond favourably to that especially if they were treated like kings by their old coach.
I love how hes doing it for the leafs. but why did he never do it to the sharks?
Marleau his captain was mad under-acheiving last year but he was always played
cheechoo was also mad under-acheiving he still played but at a lower line.
Why didnt he hold them accountable. it seems kinda weird that he does it with the leafs but never did it with the sharks. If sundin was playing and he was doing terrible would he hold him accountable?
I just found that a little odd.
Im just going to giggle at this and then come check in later in the season.
What RW likes to do is throw people under fast moving buses without taking into accountability his own failures as a coach. It will work for awhile but eventually his players will turn on him. He also wont hold players accountable that he "likes", only those who he already has an issue with.
