Derek King Breaks Down After Game, Says Everybody's Frustrated.

Another night another loss for the Chicago Blackhawks as things continue to fall apart. This time it was a 6-4 loss to the Arizona Coyotes, yes the Arizona Coyotes. The same Coyotes who've been trading away all their players and sit at the bottom of the league with a .266 winning percentage. After the game interim head coach Derek King said there's no more answers besides the generic hockey answers and everybody is frustrated. «The broken record has been played for 100 years,» King said. «It doesn't matter if it's these guys or the next generation. Even when I played, it was the same thing. We said the right things and we believe in the right things. And sometimes it's hard to do the right things.»
«It's not like we have a banner up in our room: ‘Playoffs is the goal,'» King said. «We're just taking it day by day. We can't worry about that right now; we just have to worry about whether we're going to be playing next week or things are going to get shut down the next game, and that's tonight. We've got to worry about ourselves in that way.»«We can beat this thing to death,» King said. «It's frustrating, and I know they're frustrated. The biggest thing is they still need to believe that they're a good team and they can pull out of this and continue to climb the charts. My message is just back each other up, stay as a team. And let's not get to that fragile state again. And hopefully, that's what they talked about.»
What do you think of King's comments?
