I'm seeing it the same way. Impossibly to know for sure unless you're Gabe Landeskog.
I was talking in general. Ive seen quite some games where he just does nothing. Last two games are great to select as we outshot teams but im looking at the era with bedsy so far.
If Bednar instigated the whole exchange .. Not a good look for him at all
Are there any indications this might be the case?
If you watch the video long enough and wish hard enough, yes.
How did MacK play the shift before? There was probably a reason he said it
I believe Bednar started the whole thing, probably said something to MacKinnon when the goalie was pulled and MacK didn't like it. If that's the case, why is Bednar even picking on MacK, how about saying something to your goalies who can't stop a beach ball, or how about saying something to players like Kerfoot or whoever else was counted on to produce secondary scoring because no one can finish worth a damn.
I know MacKinnon should try to control his emotions no matter what, but I blame this whole thing on Bednar and not MacK. He has been one of the best players in the league the last 2 years, and Bednar shouldn't criticize him for one play, whatever happened there with the goalie pulled
MacK has a temper. I’ve seen him throw his stick several times at practice this year. He’s definitely a competitive guy and that’s awesome but he’s got to learn to control it a little bit. Seeing him throw is stick after missing a shot in practice is a bit much.
Can't f with Nate Dawg. I rather he shows emotion than to look like the other bunch of losers on the bench
Being one of the best player in the league (even the best for that matter) does not give him the right to lash out at his coach. You have to respect the coach. I'm sure he wouldn't like to be yelled at on the bench so it goes both ways. The only thing this outburst accomplishes is it embarrasses the coach and it looks bad on the player. Look at Landy and Jost for proof. If it would be OK Landy wouldn't be trying to stop him and Jost looks so embarrass beside him. With a little longer in the league and maybe a little bit better season I'm sure Jost would have said something to him as well. Just not a good look for Mack there. It's OK to have emotions but he needs to control them much better.
I get all that but why is Bednar picking on MacKinnon to begin with? This team has been playing like **** for a while and Bednar decided to criticize MacK for whatever he did on one play with the goalie pulled?
Like I said, even though MacK should have controlled his emotions better, the whole thing was started by Bednar. MacKinnon along with Mikko and Landy have been the only consitensy all year for this team, the coach should perhaps criticize the others who aren't doing their job, like the goalies and secondary scorers that they dont have
It's so good to see MacK pissed off like that, tired of losing... It reminds me of Duchene celebrating his 30th goal with his team down 4-0. Glad that loser is gone.
How do you Bednar started this whole thing. You are just speculating. Even if he did say something first to Mack Bednar didn't lash out at him. It is probably more accurate to say Mack made a comment coming back to the bench and Bednar replied to him and angered Mack even more. Nobody knows really what happened.
I'm glad Mack is coming out with an apology and recognizes his mistake. This is being blown out of proportion.
We can move on now.
Lizard people do exist
They are amongst us
The media won't though guaranteed this will be brought up for awhile.
Meh, I still say Bednar should have apologized to MacKinnon because without MacK this team is in dead last place and Bednar wouldn't have a job much longer
Mack is now in Montreal of all places.
"MONTREAL – If there is one city in the NHL where the glare of the media is still white hot, especially when anything controversial happens, it’s Montreal. Absolutely nothing goes unnoticed here when it comes to the NHL, even if it happened way across the vast Canadian landscape, as Nathan MacKinnon’s outburst toward his coach was on the bench the other night, in Calgary.
A media horde standing roughly four deep encircled MacKinnon’s locker after Avalanche practice here Friday, curious how the star center would respond, two days after he was caught on camera barking at coach Jared Bednar at the end of a 5-3 loss."
Much to do about nothing. This is exactly what Nate says it is, a frustrated player venting at the end of a game where his team has lost 8 out of last 10. If it happens again, then you might have something, but I suspect it won't.
Naturally we have a Canadian road swing during this. Canadian media eats this stuff up and drags it out like a constipated ****.
Neither one of them seems all that worried about it.
You’ve either have access to an additional 3 camera angles and an undergrad in lip reading, or a vivid imagination to state the above as the facts of what happened. Heat of the moment. It’s over.
It can't work that way, at least not in public.
