Hope he gets a writer to rework those "motivational" messages. Good sentiments, but the phrasing is just awful.

Speaking of which... *slides copywriting portfolio under Carlyle's door*

Nah, they've just put the stereo controls in Dion's locker. The stereo itself stays where it is.

Like this?

“Maintain a positive attitude, expect a lot of yourself and only expect your best."
Play better and smile for the cameras.

“Don’t sulk or point fingers, stay positive when things get tough.”
If you suck, you better not whine.

“Every player is a leader in his own way.”
7th defensemen lead by keeping their mouths shut.

“Play with self-disciplined aggression. Control emotions when playing aggressively or you will be controlled by opponents or situations.”
Hurt people every chance you get, but don't take penalties.


“Avoid making excuses. Admit mistakes, errors, lapses in discipline, accept defeat without excuses. Learn from mistakes, focus on improvements.”
When I tell you how much you suck, I better not hear any backtalk.

Now thems are some moteevational phrases.

Maybe something that will make these players play with pride and remind them of the greats before them. If they work hard enough, get this team to glory, they could go down in record books as one of the great Toronto Maple Leafs of all time. At some point, it stops being about the money and starts being about winning.

Feng Shui - whatever helps them feel more comfortable losing I guess.

I hope this helps. This isn't just a place where you can get money but earn a spot of being an all time favourite and possibly a legend if the grail is in our grasp.

I hope they realize with our roots we deserve much better than what we have recently.

I will be disappointed if the Leafs biggest upgrade in the off-season was the paint on the dressing room wall. Of course I kid.....JVR was hopefully a good addition.

If Carlyle is given control of the stereo I envision it playing nothing but Phil Collins for some reason

huh... knew about the renovation. Didn't know Carlyle was playing a role in it.

I hope Conn Smythe's famous words are kept in a prominent position, as they have been since the 1930s.

Cody Franson is way better than Komisarek. Normally not a fan of players whining like he did, but I agree with him.
