There are 3 lies. Lies, damn lies, and stats. Even fancy stats don't tell the whole story.
As far as Jurco goes, I remember Blashill says nh Jurco needs to skate harder, not be able to skate harder. That implies an unwillingness to put forth necessary effort.
Not necessarily. If your boss said you needed to work harder, does that automatically mean you're unwilling to work harder? No it just means he expects more out of you, now you have to show him what you can do. He's just lighting a fire. Most players when in a slump or something like that will openly admit they need to work harder, it's not some public shaming.
