Maybe Niagara spoils and pampers the players. Maybe instead of busing to the Soo the day before the game, they should bus there on game day.
If they are going to have bus legs (almost looked like it to me) let them have 8 hour bus legs to start the game.
Time to get tough... Coaching staff
Definitely agree with you. I have said the same thing many times. Treat these guys as employees not you children. When family is left out of the work place things run much better.

I donít blame Dhillon for not stopping that sometimes goalies get caught off guard by those deflections but I agree he couldíve got it with his pad

I don't know. A puck passed to the front of the net with a player charging the net - you have to expect the puck to be redirected (skate or stick) to the net.

If only we could have more people as smart as you running the team. I am sure all of their problems would go away. That is of course until someone had an opinion different than yours and then they would be in trouble

Had a recent discussion with a long-term billet recently, and those same comments were echoed. Discipline used to be the theme (eating, sleeping, schoolwork, curfew, practice). The new norm is that the players are left in charge of their own regime with no accountability to the organization.

I don’t blame Steve Dhillon. I blame the coaching staff for not having/ever using a backup goaltender. Just FYI, ‘coaching staff’: this is why Dhillon breaks down in the stretch, and into the playoffs. Use the backup goaltender. You know, that other kid with goal pads on. This team is going to crash hard if the coaching staff doesn’t figure this out soon. I wonder what effect the new goaltender coach will have?

See now here is the problem – who and what exactly do we believe?

I personally know a long-time billet who told me that she was not returning this year because the demands on her family to manage their nutrition and the responsibility to keep close tabs of the players in terms of school and their whereabout got to be too much for her – and did not return as a billet this year.
