Brophy Still Has The Fire

from the New York Times,
He has come out of retirement this season to coach the Richmond Renegades, a new team in the Southern Professional Hockey League, three rungs below the National Hockey League. Competitive coals still smolder within. “Am I driven?” Brophy said. “Very much so. Driven to win. To me nothing, nothing, replaces winning. Nothing.” At practice, his players are mindful of the stories, the “Slap Shot” legend, his demand of 100 percent effort 100 percent of the time. They understand his penchant for high-tempo drills, for conditioning and skating, for skating and more skating.
