Back in Dave Tippett’s day they had to walk to the rink and back. Uphill both ways. And there was no such thing as a pre-game meal because restaurants were only open for an hour at breakfast, an hour at lunch and an hour at dinner. If you wanted something to eat after a game then you went out to the parking long and grabbed a handful of rocks.

Yet it’s a constant excuse by writers for teams.

Let’s factor in when tippett played, compensation wasn’t as good either.  Still motivated to win.
