Tocchet Will Coach His Way

from the CP via TSN,

Interim coach Rick Tocchet had players breathing hard during his first practice Saturday, looking to install high-tempo play for the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Tocchet’s coaching style will include lessons learned from the coaches he played and worked for, such as Scotty Bowman, Mike Keenan, Wayne Gretzky and Jim Schoenfeld. It also will reflect his own hard-nose playing days.

‘‘Paul Coffey left me a message. ‘Make sure you do what you believe in. Don’t compromise,’‘’ Tocchet said. ‘‘I’m pretty easy-going guy, a fair guy, but I believe in a certain way to play.’‘
