"The thing that really surprised me is how fast the game was from being behind the bench because as a player, what you focus on is your next shift, what you’re doing and everything. As a coach, you want to make sure we’re playing the system right and you want to make the correct choices.
"I’d be the one who would go up to a guy and tell him if he was in the wrong or right position, or “do this” or “do that” and it was really fast. The first fifteen games being behind the bench, everything was happening so fast that it was harder for me to see our system and figure out where the guys should be and everything. But the more you’re behind that bench, the more you learn and it gets a little bit easier for sure.”
-Ian Laperriere, assistant coach for the Philadelphia Flyers. More from Laperriere at the Flyers website.
