Coach Maurice – What was the thinking behind no skate today? Is this a fragile team? What can he do to change that reaction? Does the team need to be more vocal? What did he think of Perreault on the wing? Is there something he’s experienced in the past that can help him with this group? Not an easy thing to do. Did he have some sense of it before he came into this environment? Is it hard to break out of patterns? Who does this team take its cues from? Who does this team takes its cues from on a player level? Is it hard for a young player to exert what he wants in a locker room (ex. Scheifele)? Is it concerning when he hears his players talk about their confidence being low? Game changing players? Does he think this group can grow under what he is trying to show them and try to be effective? Then its not time to break up this group?
