Fehr praised Alex Ovechkin at length, calling him “a great leader” who is “really well liked” inside the Caps dressing room, but he had a telling response when asked about the team’s defensive shift last season.

“They were definitely trying to buy in,” he said of his teammates. “I know for the Russian players, defense is not always the first thing on their mind, but it was definitely something we worked on last year, and I think it showed in the goals-against that the team had. It’s definitely a different style of play for those guys.”

Fehr was also asked how Bruce Boudreau had changed during the move from Hershey to the big time.

“He definitely had to change his style a little bit in the National Hockey League, coaching these real high-end players, high-end talents,” Fehr said. “It’s a bit of a different approach, I think. He changed the way he coached a little bit moving up to the higher level.”

“[NHL players] definitely have to like you, I think that’s one of the main things. And you want to try to make it so the players are wanting to play for you, so it’s really a fine line between making sure they’re working their hardest and trying to keep them happy. It’s probably one of the most difficult jobs in the world, I think, to work with some of these star players.”

Interesting comments from Eric Fehr(re: Russian players and coaching).

Kind of applies to the Sens (Filatov and Clouston the past 2+ years).

finally some honesty coming from an NHL player. he should be interviewed more. this is the kind of response no one is giving these days. it's not bashing anyone but paints the reality of the NHL.

Yeah, and the market for a second line centre may have gotten more crowded as well.

He's a former 1st rounder and ready to step in and contribute now. Giving up a 2nd rounder for a team that has a need to fill (small but fast -- very fast, and is pretty good on face offs) is not a big deal. For a rebuilding team like the Sens, for sure, it makes little sense, but for the Ducks, why not?

http://sports.yahoo.com/nhl/blog/puck_daddy/post/Why-the-Oilers-cut-ties-with-Andrew-Cogliano-in-;_ylt=AlqK9XpVCzh9Bi8xYT911N17vLYF?urn=nhl-wp9024

His faceoff winning percentage was atrocious: 41.6 percent last season (461-647) after posting a 43-percent winning percentage in the previous season. That was one reason why blogger Tyler Dellow didn't see Cogliano as a long-term prospect for the Oilers last September, the others being that "he isn't really a guy who creates a lot of offence or one who is particularly good defensively.

Someone (probably on twitter) said he was good on face offs. Maybe that was relative to the rest of the Oilers.
He seems pretty bad on faceoffs.

Found it:

Did you know-- Cogliano won fastest skater competition at 2009 #NHL #SuperSkills. Also led EDM in faceoff wins last year.

He may have been bad but he was the best of all the Oilers.

I have to admit that I like some of the detailing -- the keyboard trim *inside* and the guitar strings across the numbers.

Except no-one will see the keyboard, and most aren't going to "get" the strings.
