No practice on game days.


Recommended Posts

So wait, let me get this straight - they won't be together again as a team after getting absolutely embarrassed until the next game on Thursday?  When most guys probably won't even lace up for the morning skate?

 

Mmmmmm...

that might be best... i mean it is only one day in between, do you want to see the people you work with every single day?

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?

All that means is there is no on-ice practice. It's quite possible there were team meetings, video sessions, etc at the rink.
