If the kid puts the puck in the net, who cares.
Typical idiot parent response. Let me guess you paid your kid a dollar a goal when he was in squirts? Geez, I wonder where he learned those bad habits from?
The weekend is coming up so make sure you wash his game jersey so you can wear in the stands!
"...that is similar to telling employees to show up on time for work."
Ahhh, have you ever employed a millennial?
i must have the wrong board. the one i thought i was on was filled with 'players that wanted to be there' and 'self motivated' and 'he wants to go [to games/practice hours away]' and 'looking to get to the next level'.
working and skating hard should be a given. if not, they should not be there. interesting how that point was overlooked. of course there will 'those days' but i assume the OP was talking about a long-term trend. 'yellers' have a short life as a coach (a/k/a Mike Keenan) but then again it looks impressive to those easily...
just my opinion, but if you're a coach...you never stop encouraging kids.
