after reading this story, I hope some of the nations are pulling their participation. Why risk your life for just two weeks I know it sucks for the Olympics, but the IOC should have picked a safer city.
This already has made the rounds with TSN insiders, do you think the NHL or NHLPA will step in at some point ? First I was worried about the atlethes because of the KGB, but now I'm worried because of Russia + Muslims.
tldr: don't risk it there will be another tournament in 4 years its not worth it.
I fully support and understand him, if my *own* coach isn't willing to go bot bat for me, I would be having a hard time giving my all and more for him. Seriously, Jack Johnson was traded to the BLue Jackets, came in with a positive attitude and that's the kind of "thanks" he is getting from Richards ? Man if my personal coach would tell others I'm not good enough I would be changing him immediately.
Richards should kiss his .... thanks to players like JJ he is still having a job, yeah the guy [JJ] may not have the best season, but he is still miles better than the likes of Faulk. So how about backing him up and helping him out instead of basically throwing him under the bus ?
I'm starting to wonder, if team USA should change their braintrust, I think some of them can't spell the word "classy" it just isn't in their vocabulary.
