Also Streit Rivet and Souray leap instantly to mind as players having publicly come out saying the coach does not talk to players and that they are not told why decisions are made (like being benched for example).
Also Carbonneau HIMSELF has publicly stated he doesn't really talk to players on NUMEROUS occaisions, saying that's not his style, or if the players want someone to talk to he's not the guy etc..
Carbo is a very incompetent coach. Never coached a single game in the minors - at any levels.
He doesn't communicate
He is not a technician (tactical specialist)
The problem is that Carbo is too much of a stubborn retard to make any adjustments even though every team in the league has figured us out.
Every other coach is capable of making adjustments, or else they are fired.
Carbo is beyond incompetant. He's a stupid, stupid coach.
You may not like the adjustment that he makes but don't go saying he doesn't make any, when things does not work out he shuffles lines a lot (but then again, some people here takes anything he does as a reason to bash him, from not making adjustement to making too many adjustment and therefore pissing off every player's ego on the team).
Our team is pretty simple to figure out indeed, they take at least half of every games off, unfortunately, I don't think not working hard is part of Carbo's plan.
I think you're not holding to players accountable enough for their actions.
