Seth Jones Rips Apart His Teammates During Recent Interview: Showing little accountability
BY RYAN HOLLINGSWORTH NOVEMBER 8, 2023 (10:13)
The Toronto Maple Leafs, Edmonton Oilers, and Pittsburgh Penguins are among the teams that should be performing better, considering the talent on their rosters and should be winning more games.
Conversely, the Blackhawks find themselves on the opposite end of the spectrum. As most are aware, this team is expected to secure another lottery pick as they continue their rebuilding phase under General Manager Kyle Davidson and the Wirtz ownership.
However, the expectation of losing as many games as the Blackhawks have been predicted to do doesn't necessarily mean the team is devoid of frustration, especially from the veteran players who remain.
Seth Jones, the defenseman who has been with the Blackhawks for several years, has become a lightning rod of controversy due to his mega contract extension, worth $9.5 million per season, coupled with lacklustre performance.
Following the team's recent losses, he spoke about the necessity of accountability within the team and the importance of players expressing their feelings.
After the team's disheartening loss against the New Jersey Devils, while playing at home, the Blackhawks' leadership group felt the need for a team-only meeting.
In this meeting, no coaches or management members were allowed in the dressing room. Several discussions and heartfelt comments were exchanged, addressing the team's need to improve its consistency and overall play.
Blackhawks fans will see whether this discussion has any impact as the team hits the road to face the Tampa Bay Lightning on November 9th. The game is scheduled to start at 7:00 PM Eastern Time.
WILL THE BLACKHAWKS GIVE A BETTER EFFORT AFTER THEIR PLAYERS ONLY MEETING?
