Buff, Oli, Seto & Pavs all gone by draft day this summer - wouldn't that be really building for the future.

Keep hearing Kane's names in trade rumours though - that would somewhat surprise me (perhaps there is more going on behind the scenes than we realize).

I think you keep hearing Kanes name for the same reason you hear anyone' name...they're good enough at hockey that people want them.

add in the fact it took the winnipeg media three years to get over the novelty of a young black hockey player not acting like a 60 year old white banker and it's not really a suprise.

I can't see how anyone who watches the games could want Kane gone. Kid has no quit and buckets of talent. Can't see our GM wanting to deal him either.

Not to mention that all we keep hearing about is young, fast and big. He's all of those.

Thanks so much for this OP. I'm really getting a good vibe about Maurice. Not sure how long he'll be here, but he seems like such a ridiculously good fit for our team right now.

We're probably still min 3-4 years away from being looked at as a team expecting to win a playoff series. But the sooner we get the experience of losing the more it will harden our young players' resolve not to lose. Maurice seems like the right guy to get us to the dance as soon as we can.

I think a big part of it was he was asked questions about specific problems (in terms of "when a player has an attitude issue" or something, never about specific players) and difficult situations, and how you resolve them.

He brought up jets examples as much, or more, than those asking the questions. Nobody was looking for a soundbite, (much the opposite, he talked for almost 2 hours) everybody wanted to know how an NHL coach goes about fostering culture change in a dressing room of multi million dollar players, and were asking much deeper questions than "how are you going to win more games?"

When he talked about people no longer being with the jets, did you get the feeling that a trade is imminent?

Moreso just that Status Quo is not okay when we are not winning the Stanley Cup and the Presidents trophy every year. That if there is a player or coach who is not contributing to the organization then they will see the door, be it through trade, UFA, firing, etc.

He stressed that it is not fair to the other 20 guys if a small group of players is not being held accountable for their level of play while the others are. So you have to put a bit of pressure on those players, and tell them you need improvement, and if you legitimately give them a chance to improve, and tell them in what ways you need to see improvement, and they don't get any better or change at all, then you need to part ways with them eventually.

So yeah, what I got out of it wasn't "I'm coming in with a battleaxe to make a lot of cuts". It was that if a player isn't working out, he's going to try and help them figure out how to do what they need to do, but if they can't or wont do it, then there is no place for them on the team in the long run.

Gotta hope he was talking about Pavs when he was talking about players holding the whole team back. Lets hope they've told him exactly what he needs to change, and given him the rest of the year to prove he is making significant progress. Given that, & knowing how resistant Pavs is to really changing, = its been great to know you Pavs - have a nice time in the KHL.

To be fair to Pavs, he seems to lack the talent, but he always comes off as a guy who is liked in the room.

(This is based on the times I've seen him and bunch of other Jets hanging out outside of the rink).

people always have to remember that Maurice has a wicked sense of humour. he did an interview with the FAN590 right when he accepted the Jets job. he talked about how when he was in Toronto, he kept most of his jokes in his head due to the market, and how he really wanted to use his dark, sarcastic humour more.

him saying that he could name the players that he wants to trade is, in my opinion, his version of a joke. of course he won't name players and most teams have players they would want to trade. no coach would ever admit to it.

He said if there is missed coverage, there is missed coverage, goal against or not, and the answer is fixing that coverage, and if the players are in the right places, and properly doing the tasks they are supposed to do, the results should follow. Essentially he said that he doesn't care about how many giveaways a player makes that end up in the back of the net, he cares about the number of giveaways that player makes period. He talked about looking at a player and saying "well, he's not too hot right now, but his winger isn't helping him at all." So it seems he is input focused, which I like.
I like this.

He didn't say that he was fixing the defense for the purpose of evaluating goaltending. He used it as an example for making sure you can hold people to the standards you set, basically that he can't hold the goalie accountable unless he knows it's on the goalie.
Well then he should be fired because everyone here knows it's all Pavs' fault all the time.

Funny I say our defense is terrible and everyone is quick to jump down my throat. And now it comes right from the coaches mouth.

I just think he's trying to prove beyond all reasonable doubt that Pavelec is terrible, but to each their own.

I thought you might. Basically to sum up what he said was that you can label it however you want, but he has certain things from the players that he is looking for, and he is going to make sure those things are done properly, regardless of the end result of whatever those mistakes were.

If Stuart makes a bad pass that almost gets picked off for a goal, and Trouba goes on an end to end rush with the puck, and Stu gets an assist on the play, it's still a bad pass. And he has people looking through tape to find those isolated moments that are issues, regardless of whether or not they end up in a net.

Someone asked him how a person could identify their own weaknesses and where they need to improve as a leader.

He deadpanned right at the guy and said "Get Married"

Well... They all but have to send two players down to St. John's.

If those are the moves, this will be kinda anticlimactic.

He talked about it being hard to get rid of a player, but you have to do it, because you care so much about all of the other guys that the one who is an issue needs to go.
I really liked this part.
