    There is a time and place for everything. If he can help by pointing out where a Dman should be or how he should react to a situation, that is fine. If someone needs a kick in the ass because of effort or consistently making the same mistake, the team can live with it. Beyond that he'll have to be positive about doing his job and leave most of the criticism for the coaches. Quinn is an activist D coach anyway.
    It is his job to do it when guys screen him or deflect a shot in past him. They all communicate on the ice, so if he is telling a guy he is doing something wrong, and he continues to do it, why shouldn't he be yelled at. A coach doesn't know if a guy keeps screening the goalie, the goalie has to do it himself. And again, at your job, if someone screws you, are you gonna run to a boss or tell him yourself? He has to say something to a player when it happens so the player knows not to do it again in the game. Goalies see more of whats going on in a game than a forward or defensemen, so they communicate with their players more.

    in the moment, I doubt that Lundqvist can gauge how well teammates are doing their job - more likely he is emotionally venting. A blocked shot helps a goaltender while a deflected shot makes his job more difficult - the action by the defender is the same, just with a different result. So does a blocked shot mean that a player did his job while a deflected shot means he didn't? If an opponent is in the crease, a defender has to guard him or try and move him out, both of which will reduce the goalie's visibility. so most of the reasons why a goalie would bitch are at players that are just trying to do their job. An awful lot for Lundqvist to assess when he is supposed to be stopping the puck and anticipating puck movement between opponents.

    Better to leave the coaching and corrections to the bench. Goalies may see more of the game than forwards or defensemen, but they are still not seeing as much as coaches, and are biased in their perspective.

    All good points. When Hank talks or screams at playrs after a goal he should not be making it so publicly obvious. We don't know what most goalies say to their teammates because we can't see their mouths. To point, flail, step up to, with your head shaking and shame someone who is a professional athlete is inexcusable. I was glad when JT Miller actually yelled back at him a couple of weeks before the trade. If he has something to say to a teammate it should happen in the lockeroom or with less dramatics on the ice.

    You make great points about communication and what goalies are able to see. So, if you are encouraging Hank to communicate and inform, awesome.

    It is the yelling at part that some have a problem with. It is not his job to be disciplinarian or head coach. It is one thing to offer a coaching tip or firm instruction, but we don't want our players/goalies to be expected to critique and yell at teammates after goals, bad plays and losses. Particularly not in front of the crowd or cameras. Quite the opposite.

    Let me clarify that
    GAA is in reference/correlation vs shots per game
    Not shots per season

    So when comparing his GAA against another goaltender....show me shots per game

    You showed a difference in shots per season, in that case reference goals against per season

    So are you saying goalies haven’t started saying things to their teammates mid game until Hank came along?

    Iím saying most professional adults know how to deal with adversity.
    Hank is not the first, but that does not excuse the behavior.

    Anytime you reference ďwell so and so did it...Ē

    If there is an issue with a player screwing up all game and costing scoring chances for the other team, you don’t wait u til the end of the game or in between periods to say something. And players yell at each other all the time. You don’t think the captain yells at his team on the bench when they are having a shitty game. Player communication, whether it’s talking or arguing with a teammate is part of the game. Their are a lot of emotions and when someone messes up, a pissed off teammate is gonna happen. As for doing it during a game or when cameras are on, why would you wait until the plane ride home to tell a player to stop screening you?

    Totally disagree. Itís part of any game where players who are playing badly and costing their team get yelled at by teammates. Has nothing to do with being an adult. At your job, if your fellow employee screws up and it screws you, are you gonna say something to them at that moment or wait until the boss says something to him? And you said itís the new thing for people to complain, which is why I posted what I did.

    Saying and athlete should say something to another teammate or yell at them because they are in public makes zero sense. The game is on TV and people are there to watch the game, when are they supposed to do it? It happens in every sport, people forget this is their job, they aren’t doing this for fun.

    So you have a different work environment, so while your doing your job, if someone screws up, your gonna say something to them. A large crowd isn’t watching you do your job, there is a huge difference between the two.

    Iím completely confused.

    You are saying itís more acceptable to yell at coworkers in public than in private?

    And letís get one thing straight....Lundy is not yelling at employees....these are coworkers

    The coach gets to yell at employees

    You could always address it after the game in the room.

    I do have to say it's remarkable...

    Torts yelled at Hank...fired
    Steps yelled at Hank...traded

    Hank yelled at:

    G...traded
    McD...traded
    Smith...demoted
    Staal...lost an eye


    Remarkable.

    I’m saying that your on Hank because he yelled at a coworker in public and that you would only do it in private. But the difference between your job and an athletes is that there job is public. When they are performing it, it’s usually on TV and is always in front of a crowd, so where should he say something to a teammate?

    And again, you have never argued or said anything to a coworker over a mistake?
