Developing The Young Players By Willie Desjardins

The Canucks lost to the Jets 4-1 last night, with Winnipeg scoring to late goals to make the game seam more lopsided than it was.

from Jason Botchord of the Vancouver Province,

Willie believes a string of losing close games like this could be beneficial for the young players, not bad.

“This is the kind of scenario you want to bring your young guys on,” Willie said.

But why?

“Every shift, they have to play well. If they don’t, it’s not good enough.”

“Every guy has to do that. That’s how you develop players.”

He continued.

“You don’t develop them when it’s easy going and it doesn’t matter.

“They’re being developed in a tough environment. It’s good for them.

“They’ve had some hiccups but overall, they’ve been pretty good.”
