from Eric Stephens of the Ducks Blog, Meetings, meetings and more meetings.
The Ducks seem to be full of them at the moment. They’ve been one-on-one on the ice and, most recently, in the coach’s office. They’ve been as an entire group in the dressing room.
The problem is teams that have a lot of meetings is a sure sign that there are problems to be sorted out. And the bottom line is the Ducks’ current horrific 2-8-4 stretch speaks to the amount of issues that are apparent.
“When you lose, you try to figure out things and obviously a lot more attention [is paid] to little details when you’re losing,” Ducks center Saku Koivu said. “That’s just the way it goes. The same thing happens everywhere. We’re all trying to figure out a way of getting things back to winning and back where we have to be.”
