Discipline, if done in the right doses, can be a huge benefit to any team. It's no surprise that a team like the New England Patriots, under the tutelage of Bill Belichick, have 4 superbowls in the bag, and two almost superbowls to add to that (Let's Go Giants!).
Belichick has a team-first attitude. Says very little in press conferences, and ensures his players do the same.
In an NFL that is riddled with the most narcissist, self-endearing, off-the-hip player base in professional sports, Belichick's philosophy has yielded great results.
It helps that he has a player like Brady, who much like Brodeur, is built similarly. Not much expectation in either Brady or Broduer at the start of their careers, but in the end, are/were instrumental in working with men like Belichick and Lamoriello because of their charisma and loyalty to the men they served and to the goal of winning.
Lamoriello's style will be missed. I sure as heck will miss it. Because his style, single handedly, may have won us a few cups - not because of the personnel we had, but in how he protected his players and ensured no one would mess with his "family"...
Thanks for everything Lou. You'll be missed. Good luck Mr. Shero!
