We are going to have to win lower scoring games.
Coaches and players have gotten around the rules and we have to recognise it-use of hands instead of sticks.Players are as good as they are because they figure it out.
We have to be tight defensively to win these games.
Yes,we have changed our game grudgingly-opportunity for momentum shifts is really good for hockey.
It is a fluid sport and we have to change with it.
I did not have to take input from Alain to come to this conclusion.We are a tight knit group and we talk about hockey,watch hockey all the time.
I get annoyed when I hear people say we don't win the right way.There are no points for style.
We have to learn how to win one goal games.
It is a long season and we have played a lot of hockey along with ups and downs in a long season.
We have focused on the playoffs for a long time-6,7 weeks- but now we are moving in the right direction.
Spoke to Daniel today,looks good,not a lot to report.Moving in the right direction.
Keith ruling:If it is the right message the infraction leaves the game.
Tripping on icing calls--players adapt and if the right message gets sent to players they will adapt and change their behaviour.
Andrew Ebbett-out there today and practising with contact.Very close to coming back
Keith-concussions are very different.Keith has to be 100% and we have to be very certain.
Any second concussions ,repeat concussions are very dangerous.
Byron has been quite sick.Hoping he feels better.We only have four call ups.
Schroeder-I have a feeling.......we have no centre ice opportunities now.
Kevin C-same story.Deserves some time up here but with the four recalls we have to be very careful.
Raymond-we never lost our confidence in his abilities.
Mason cares abut his game and is a good team mate.He is going to get results.
We are happy with his results.
College front-we are active and successful.We have targetted certain players.
We are trying to get the best players that fit with our organisation.
Stan Smyl is good at it and we will try to get those players.
