OK, so we left the old thread...perhaps a bit prematurely. IMO people were suggesting that there are a great number of competent, compassionate coaches in Women's Hockey - but that description did not fit every single person behind the bench. Sounds like reality in any walk of life. No one is here to assassinate character. We are sharing our experiences, thoughts and feelings. At the least, we can hear of interpersonal relationships in a hockey world that we care about; coaches included. Sometimes we share information, sometimes we express concerns. If this is correct, then we need this topic to be available. Obviously the number of views and responses will tell.
