He means the address will be pretty much nothing crazy and hopes of him wanting out are pretty much slim to none.

Accountability. That is what Ladouceur and Cunneyworth are all about. That is why, despite the Habs needing a goal in the third period last night, Kostitsyn found himself glued to the bench. That is why when Subban makes a mistake, he gets an ear-ful. They're not handling little children with bruised feelings. They're all men. If you want to fool around at practice, be prepared to get yelled at. Hell I even went through that playing Bantam hockey.
Exactly.

They are all paid, very well paid to be PROFESSIONAL players.

Absolutely nothing at all. Just that it isn't hard to predict what the agent will say and it's hardly going to be groundbreaking.

As MathMan said, there's a lot of inconsistency in the ''accountability'' this coaching staff is portraying.
There's also timing to consider. I have no problem with Gomez getting yelled at. I don't really agree with an assistant coach doing this in public, in front of the whole team, but there's not much you can defend Gomez for.
But I still don't believe Gomez and AK should be the two least used forwards in a game that is ''must-win'', especially when Palushaj and 7 Dmen are dressed.

Kostitsyn wasn't just glued to the bench in the third. He had played 2 shifts after the 1st period. I mean, really, accountability? Other players when paired with Gomez did nothing, yet they weren't benched.
But all that could be put aside and ignored if this wasn't a ''must-win'' situation. What's the point of risking to lose, just to hope that AK will rise up and become Super AK? We've seen it before with AK, it just doesn't work. The man is a streaky player, freaking live with it, don't act surprised. If he's so hated, then why is he here?
It reminds me of when Carbo benched Kovalev in the dying seconds of the last game versus the Leafs. There's just absolutely no point to it.
It's just dumb, but even more so, it's absolutely unwarranted.

As for screaming at them, I don't think veterans respond well to humiliation.

The emo Habs fan, in a nutshell

I think you covered all of the crazy in one go. Well done.

I'd prefer they'd be about winning...

after winning four straight, you NEED a goal to tie the game... you keep playing Darche, on a 4 on 4 even... and let a guy like AK rot on the bench ?

well, I dont care if he deserved to be on the ice or not, that's bullcrap anyway... On the ice I want guys that can win you games with a single wrister or a slapper, not ones that that scores 5 a year on a good year, even if they have a perfect workethic and all...

if you want accountability, it has to go both ways, and putting your least talented forward on the ice, with few minutes left in a game you're trailing by 1... well, that's retarded...

Let's say he says he wants out. He should probably ask Sheldon Souray how that went. Talk about awkward...

Same thing Cammalleri said...KINDA!!!

As for Kostistinkin....let him rot on the bench!! He plays when he feels like it and doesn't command anywhere near where he is getting paid now!! Trade him...and hey...this should satisfy everyone who grunts about an english coach...trade him for a batch or "How to Learn Francais" dvd's.....we still may have to throw in a few rolls of tape to get that deal done!

When we had Martin and Pearn behind the bench, people were constantly *****ing and moaning because they barely ever showed any emotion. Now we have Ladouceur who clearly wears his heart on his sleeve and people have the audacity to say that he's a fat ass with issues? What the hell is wrong with you guys?

good to see a tough coach telling it like it is. even the vets need reminders to step up their game once in a while.
