Shane Wright: Scathing tantrums for Kraken AHL coaches

Shane Wright: Scathing tantrums for Kraken AHL coaches

A few days ago, I slipped a word about Shane Wright’s work since the start of his first training camp under the colors of the Seattle Kraken. On the surface, everything is fine.

I say surface because Seattle coach Dave Hakstol talked about the good things the young prospect is doing well on the ice (and there are plenty), but he didn’t dwell on the more negative aspects. .

But that, Mathias Brunet did. In BPM Sports he gave “the other side of the coin” after speaking well of the young man.

And what we learn through a podcast from a journalist in the defeat of the club is that Wright does not seem to have an exemplary attitude. He threw tantrums at the Kraken school club coaching staff after receiving instructions.

My colleague Maxime Truman, in particular, found out yesterday on the radio.

Note, for context, that Dan Bylsma is the coach of the Coachella Valley Firebirds in the AHL. This is the club’s first year after the arrival of the Kraken in 2021-22.

Doing attitude towards a coach is no. Doing it at 18 is even worse. And doing it to a coaching staff led by a Stanley Cup winner is… bold.

jI’ll weigh my words on that.

Obviously, he was mentioned on the podcast because of that, and for good reason. After all, a young man who learns like this cannot afford to have that attitude when he starts out professionally.

A player in general can’t throw a tantrum without… looking bad.

It’s a slightly disturbing side. She is Primadonna! – Mathias Brunet

Obviously, we’ll remember the moment when, in the playoffs, Shane Wright cleared the table for the Canadians after being passed over in the top-3. In the end, it was the Kraken, in fourth place, who chose him.

He seemed sour, and soon afterward we learned that he was looking bad at the NHL Combine and that his attitude was setting some clubs back.

For my part, I persevere and sign on: HC knows the guy by heart and clearly, when he did “the look” at the repechage, he certainly confirmed to management that Wright didn’t have what it took, attitude-wise. , to be a predominant figure of a reconstruction in Montreal.

Seattle and Montreal are not the same thing.

And in my eyes, the fact of having seen him have a superior attitude (with whom he will not be able to rub shoulders in the short term because he cannot play in Coachella Valley in 2022) must also be one more proof, in the eyes of the CH, who Juraj Slafkovsky (a little more Joe Cool than his Seattle colleague) was the right choice.

Lucky that the Kraken has Matty Beniers…

Perhaps Wright is frustrated that Seattle’s media attention is off hockey (the Seahawks are becoming polarized and the Mariners are heading to the playoffs for the first time since 2001), which would not have been the case in Montreal. I can not say it.

But you have to move on.

Yesterday, for example, he had his first opportunity to prevail in a preseason game against the Flames. He played front row with Jaden Schwartz and Jordan Eberle, which was still a good audition.

And he had the support of a veteran like Yanni Gourde.

In the end, he played for 13m 34 and was entitled to almost three minutes on the power play. However, despite three shots at him, he was unable to thread the needle.

He also lost 2/3 of his face-offs, so he will have to give a little more to not only break the lineup, but also to have the right to start thinking about crying.

A lot of
