Tougher Questions

from the Chicago Tribune,

“There are always five or six guys who aren’t putting out,” Savard said Saturday, one day after the Hawks lost 3-1 to Nashville for their 10th consecutive loss.
“I work them, I show them, I talk to them, but it has to come from within that locker room. As a coach you get tuned out if you keep harping on stuff. We need everybody playing hard and playing good.”
Savard said it’s not the same five or six players every night who float through games—which might be a bigger problem. If it were the same players, they would be easier to identify and dispatch in the off-season.
Savard suggested the media should hold players more accountable.
“Why don’t you ask them?” he said. “Why is it always about (owner Bill) Wirtz or about (GM Dale) Tallon or the coaches all the time? I’m not upset. [The media] has a job to do. You give it to me, that’s fine.”
