In Topic: No practice on game days.

29 October 2014 - 10:38 AM

I can appreciate that there are mixed opinions among the forum and players regarding morning skates. Phil Esposito didn't like them, Brendan Shanahan did. I can also understand that if a team is playing reasonably well, a coach may decide to forgo the skate.  What about a team that is not playing well, struggling with a penalty kill, breakout or power play? Maybe a morning skate establishes greater accountability. And if some guys don't want to see each other every day, too bad. Get over it. It's your job. It's a team sport and they are your team mates. I would not have asked about this if the team was playing well, but especially after last night's disaster it seems they can all use a little extra work on the ice?

I just don't buy that this team doesn't need practice on game days. Even if they only worked on the PK and passing. At least they didn't tire themselves out this morning practicing like Pittsburgh did.
