In response to marco0863's comment:
Bad hab everyone has baggage and if you dig deep enough you will find what you want to look for. Ideally yes yiywant a player to have all of his bedside manners sign every autograph etc but its the real world whats important is whst they do on the ice not what they say or don't say and magnifying everything they do.really I find that riduculous. same thing with kess when he got traded watch if they ever trade marchand oh good he's such a jerk who cares they're the big reason why we won a cup .
I have over 70 employees and some of them are very hard to deal with some around me say why I put up with them because they bring sometbing to the business their attitudes while not exemplary are predominated by their work performances and thats what matters.
Sure. But how much is too much?
Didn't you ever fire someone because of attitude?
And who determines whether the attitude is too much or not?
The answer is the management., if it's too much for them, it's too much.
And this thread isn't about that. For whatever reason I was led to believe this kid was Ozzie and Harriet clean. I even was thinking the kid might be a good team captain because of all the maturity stuff I heard about.
Never mind the on ice stuff, this was the media impression I got. I heard about him buying the used range rover for his first car.
Then the missed team meeting came out and he got benched for that - and I was shocked by the story. Then they made it sound like he just forgot to set his alarm clock. Then bit by bit more and more came out.
This suggests to me that the Bruins spent a fair amount of time controlling the media damage.
I guess the question is what is the mgmt threshold to employee caused nuisances. Would I fire somone soley on his attitude - probably not . While I'm writing this I'm think ing of a salesman of mine and truly I can't stand him.and I just recently hired him but he's got the sales skills and if he brings home the bacon or will be bringi. Home the bacon as they say then firing him is making me a disfavor
Bad Hab everything is a business as a kid I used to accept all what the bruins did never really scrutinized it today though its a business for the owners the players and we the fans who are in actual fact the customers.
