Do Team Meetings Help?

Jason Botchford of The Province’sWhite Towel wonders at the success of team meetings, noting that the Canucks have won four straight—every tilt—since their last one. Team captain Henrik Sedin had this to say:

“You need it sometimes, you need to refocus and get all the guys together. It’s a long season and sometimes you begin to drift away. The focus isn’t there and I think that’s what happened with us during that stretch where we won one and lost one. That’s what happened earlier in the season too where we were winning games and not playing well.”

“You need to communicate. That’s what good teams do, I feel. We have a group that has been together for a long time. We are comfortable with each other. It’s an easy group to come into. I think you need that.”

Can’t argue with the results, but since Sedin only mentions them having three such meetings this season—while there have been more than a few solid streaks of excellent performances this year— perhaps it simply comes down to, ‘a good team is a good team.’

But hey, if they want to sit around and talk about it once in a while, who are we to argue?

Talk therapy… what the hell. Even Sigmund Freud would have approved.
