Go Dogs Go!!
I think that is the key. The team has to want it and play together with that in mind, every period.

If Ben Jones called a players’ only meeting, here is my suggested agenda items:


#1 Who do you play for?

…and then look directly look at Maksimov.

#2

…and then remind them “talent that works hard will win us a lot of games.”

#3 Short shifts - every line – every time. No exceptions!

#4 No passengers allowed. Hard on the back check every shift otherwise you’re letting your teammate down.

#5 Team defense means everyone know their d-zone responsibility - pick up your man!

#6 Play the man – Hit someone!

#7 Fast on the fore-check

#8 Block shots

#9 Take a hit/slash/hack/punch to the face to make a play.
…and then look directly at Maksimov again!

#10 Fight for every inch of that ice.




Now if everyone is committed to playing the right way, what a story we'll have to tell…

So in your opinion Maksimov was playing for himself?
I missed the 2nd part of the season, after Christmas break, but never seen him being not interested in team results.
He was leading dogs when they were playing in 7 forwards, he always noticeable in both offensive and defensive zones, and finally he can both score and pass.
As for me he is just way too passionate and depending on his hormones. But it is coaches and tough guys job to make scorers feel comfortable

I suppose I could post another poll for the fans to decide if he was just a ball of passion or he took needless selfish penalties 100' from the play at inopertune moments.

Exactly! He is a goal-scorer he should be on the ice, not in the box. He needs to be smarter -- rile players up and let them sit in the box while he scores goals on the PP.

He is all you say & a superb talent; it is just that he is way too self centred. Really not playing for his team in taking all those penalties. It may be having his emotions on his sleave, yet it has put our team in trouble way too many times. All teams know his weakness & a few have exploited it very successfully. Maybe he can sit on the bench a bit if he continues in this scenario in the playoffs. Billy has to get his attention a couple of times. Can still work if BB has the moxie.
We have the talent. If SD shows up, we can be tough to match.

Thankfully trading 17 draft picks (or more?) and some really good young players, at least got us one more banner!

Anyone remember Erie Otter's Brad Boyes back in the day? I believe that was his mantra. Help the opposition foul him, then make it worse by scoring on the power play. He went 1 1/2 seasons without a penalty himself as he mesmerized the other teams with his skill.
It takes a will & a lot of discipline. Could KM even try this approach a few times?

If he does, Maksimov will draw a lot of penalties – opposition players dislike him and they’ll be going after him throughout the playoffs.

Hopefully, he returns this weekend and then we’ll see if his plan is to “take one for the team” during the playoffs.
