Sadly, by the same token, we know that he has no brains.
We're talking ice hockey, not exactly a sport that requires a genius IQ to play.
How do we unf*** our lives?
An old story from high school. I was one of 3 goalies who tried out. We were all pretty good. The coach couldn't decide who to cut, so he said at final cuts, 'you're going to do ups and downs [falling to your knees and popping back up] and the first one who quits is cut.' It's like endless squats.
Needless to say we made ourselves practically puke but no one would quit, so we all made the team. I could hardly walk to the car after. Halfway through the year, for the big City wide Christmas tourney, he decided to rotate all 3 of us in-game, every time the other team scored, we'd change goalies. It was ridiculous. Sit for 2/3rd of a period, go in cold. Rinse, repeat.
It didn't produce better results, because we were all worried about getting yanked, and you can't play net that way. The team's captains finally intervened and asked him to stop, as it was disrupting the forwards and D too much, adjusting to a different goalie a couple or a few times a game.
Rotating goalies was crazy, seeing who was crazy enough to push themselves past their limits to make the team was pretty smart.
Because if the talent is similar, the best bet is the most motivated player.
Somehow, I don’t think up and downs is the best way to gauge motivational levels and make an evaluation. But I’m a dentist, not a coach.
This guy sounds like he was born to coach hockey.
Does anyone ever suck on your fingers?
I asked my dentist source and he said "Once or twice actually".
They make a lot of money. Gotta feel for a ring
I was going to follow up with "do you ask them to stop?" but I feared the response would have been sarcastic and not suitable to post on here. I know this source too well.
That’d be so bold and icky, I might allow it the first time. Who would be so nasty?! The second time would call for a gassin’ and a tooth for the trouble
How many damn dentists are on this board?
Enough to fix your gap teeth.
Has anybody said he was a smart coach yet or is it all about his character and respect
Need to get Pronger in here then
I love how the idea is we couldn't get an nhl assistant for the job because it's considered a demotion but when lappi wants the gig it's all of a sudden this big promotion.
Lappi didn't have a great special teams unit but it's better than the one we have now.
I'm pretty confident in his feel for the game as far as adjustments go and they will be running the same system which is great news. I love that the thing he is married to is uniformity with the big club which means we won't be facing any problems if there were to be a change on the big club
Are you an anti-dentite?
