How Bad Do They Want To Be A Hockey Player

from Nicholas J. Cotsonika of NHL.com,

They don't know when they'll play again. November? December? January?

"We'll learn who really wants to be a hockey player," general manager Steve Yzerman said Wednesday. "Guys that want to train are going to figure it out, guys that want to get better and improve are going to figure it out, and we're going to provide the resources to do that.

"The ones who truly don't are going to find way [not to], and they've got as good a reason as they're ever going to have of not being able to train right now.

"So a lot of the onus is on the kids' motivation."

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
