Kukla's Korner Hockey

Ron Wilson had the entire team standing near him, but not huddled together as players usually are when he’s providing direction. And as soon as I got within earshot, it was clear he was upset.
He talked about a lack of professional pride. He talked about being mentally prepared. He questioned why his players didn’t apply more pressure on the player with the NHL’s worst plus-minus rating, their former teammate Scott Hannan. And he clearly was unhappy with his team’s attention to detail — an important matter throughout the Sharks’ hierarchy — when it comes to things like short passes and clearing the puck out of the defensive zone.
