Gormley: Caps needed time to learn Oates' system
Mon, 11 Feb 2013
CSN Washington dot com. So chalk a lot of players told us about the team meeting they had on Saturday. They said that it seemed a little early to have a a team meeting has pars early in the season what's the significance of the timing of that meaning. Well the first thing they need to do is learn the system you know we talked to Matt Hendricks about that today. What they need to do was needed two weeks two to three weeks to get to know what they're doing on the ice before they can start challenging each other in the room and I think. They need to get to that point. Once they did. And they looked at the standings is that playing good isn't good enough if we're not winning. We have to start doing the little things and that's what I what I think we saw last game they sort of blocking shots he started getting. Into each other is. Into the opponents' faces hard work shifts which is something that they weren't known quite in the beginning of this season. They're very talented team but they need to out work teams and we started seeing that next game and it carried over sit there. So how difficult is it for head coach like Oates who says. We were playing the right all take us playing the right way even if we lose how hard is it for him not to look at the standings and keep telling the players that when the players and we want to win. Well it's really hard I mean when when you tell media members that you can lose ten games in a row if you're playing the right way. Management hears that and says let's not go that far and I think that's what he wants and if he wants this team to build and their building. And I said this during that streak. They're playing well I mean end and that's a hard thing to convince players up when they're losing. So I think once he realized he had reached that point where they got it. They got the system and the players had to take it from there and the players are telling them challenging themselves saying we know the system. Let's put it on the ice let's start building up the wins and it has to continue that's the you know we'll see on the three does well back CSN Washington dot com.
