Excellence is not a skill. It is an attitude.- Ralph Marston

I think that this quote by Ralph Marston sums up the Bruins pretty well. For those of you that think Claude Julien's attitude doesn't have an impact on the players anbd that they are all professional and should just motivate themselves, must not believe in sports psychology. Teams take on the attitude of the Head Coach. See Don Cherry, Lou Pinella, Jimmy Johnson, Bill Belichick, Terry O'Reilly... "Mr. Potatoe Head", "Humpty Dumpty", "Clod", call him what you want, this team plays just like his attitude. Stale, Lackluster, Reserved, Emotionless, Lethargic, Indifferent, etc...
Change the Attitude at the Helm and the excellence will shine through!
All I want for Christmas is a New Coach!
