Now after the WC final and the end of the WC, Im gonna write some stuff about our team and staff which went there and nobody knows around here. There are a lot of discussions on our boards that reveal some shocking news to me. 1. The players DIDNT train during the summer. Thats probably the main reason they were everywhere 2nd. Their first exercise was when they came to training camp and even then didnt really work out (see no.2) 2. During training camp, they went to pubs and cluns ad were up until 2 AM, which 2 weeks before the start isnt surely gonna help. 3. Filc and Stastny werent co-operating. They quarreled numerous times and when your GM and head coach quarrel = bad thing and off-ice problems= on ice problems. 4. No discipline. Zednik got his stomache ache when he went to dinner with his family the night before the CAN game! Where was the discipline? Players could have done whatever they wanted. 5. Bad luck. We had 4 players out before even the tourney started and as we dont have a lot of depth, they were serious exclusions. Im not trying to say that we would win the tourney and MAYBE we would have lost every game but we lost these games horribly. There was no desire, no willingness to go into the corners, nothing. If you want to ask, ask.
