Yeo said after Tuesday’s 2-1 loss to St. Louis that he hadn’t addressed the team in the locker room after the past two defeats. He clarified Wednesday that he met with the team three times before Tuesday’s game and does so constantly.
“I’m definitely talking to the players,” he said, laughing. “I think we have meetings to try to figure out when our next meeting is going to be right now, we’ve had so many.”
There has been so much talk about Yeo’s job security or a potential trade that there’s concern players are waiting for a bomb to drop.
“We can’t sit and wait for something to happen,” defenseman Keith Ballard said. “Ultimately, we’re not losing games because of a system. A coach isn’t there to motivate you. If you can’t motivate yourself to play well, you’re not going to last very long in this league.
“So if guys are waiting for [a coaching change] or a trade, we better look at ourselves first. Realistically, trades are hard to make right now. And there’s not going to be some magical trade for a 40-goal scorer. It’s on us in here. It’s on us to find a way to relax and focus on playing a good game.”
