After practice yesterday...
from Chip Alexander of the News & Observer,
Muller talked of “wanting guys who want to make a difference.” He said “losing is for losers” and that too many of the players were cheating and “playing their own way.”
Too many, he said, were “playing for the scoresheet” and worried about getting theirs. Some were more worried about new contracts, he said, and others about somehow holding on and playing another year in NHL.
“You’re a good group of guys but the culture is going to change,” he said. “It takes work, it takes togetherness. We have a lot of fans who support you guys and care about you and we’re not quitting. We’re staying together. You better stay together.”
Muller told the players he liked the energy at practice. But he said the consistency has not been there in games, or enough mental toughness.
At one point, he asked the players if they were upset – albeit in more graphic terms.
