The Checkerboard Coaching Technique sm The Coach Whisperer

The premise to this article is by giving a head coach or even a professional player, a statistical reference to view and understand their play, they can win right now.  It is my opinion that any team in professional sports has the capacity to win with their existing team and players.

They can do this by optimizing the best abilities of each player, in a proven statistical format.  that is what the Checkerboard Coaching Technique does.  Often times a real life example is the best teacher.  With that in mind let me use this real life true story. 

The regular hockey season ended and it was playoff time.  In visiting with the head coach I asked how he felt his chances were to win the whole thing.  He was frank and starring at his list of players on the clipboard.  "Not good.  We are great defensively, but we can't score. All the other teams we will face have scored more goals than we have."

I simply asked if I could help with that. To the coaches credit he said I am all ears.  That willingness to listen at a critical moment, is one key.  Keep in mind this coach and his staff have worked an entire season of games and practices to reach this point.  I had observed the games but did not have one ounce of input into game strategy of any kind. It would be a natural response to say thanks for your thoughts but we will have to figure this one our, or any number of other responses.  Instead this coach, on that day said he would listen.  

In the span of less than five minutes I summarized my credentials, to assure him some thought would be going into what he was about to hear.  Then I explained the statistical and historical president for what I was about to recommend.  I said in the history of this game of great players, the number one point scoring play in both goals and assists, from the number one goal and point leader in the history of the game was one play.  Have you heard of the play I asked.  He then said refresh me, and I gave him the name of the play and why that play, employed by his team may be his answer.

That team and that coaching staff won the title, and championship, in double overtime, scoring on that play.  The coach waved me out on the ice for the celebration, and as I approached he slapped me on the chest, open hand and said, "thanks for the tip.  We practiced that play for 45 minutes each practice since you told me that."  

Just a whisper in a coaches ear really, at a critical time, lead to a championship win that everyone on that team will carry with them the rest of their lives.  This experience has lead the title of this article, the coach whisperer, and what this technique offers.

MONTREAL CANADIENS: The REAL Stanley Cup Champions of 2010 - and Why! Since Lord Stanley gave his Cup for the best Canadian Team - the Real Champions

In 1892, the then Governor General of Canada, Lord Frederick Arthur Stanley, dedicated a Silver Bowl to the people of the Dominion of Canada for, "the champion hockey team in the Dominion."

The Stanley Cup became the ultimate prize for Canadian hockey teams, awarded first in 1893 to the Montreal Amateur Athletic Association (AAA). The cup has been won every year since (except 2005 - the Black Year of the Lockout - when the NHL refused to release the Cup to another League).

In 1919, the Stanley Cup Champions, Montreal Canadiens, traveled to Seattle to play a post-Championship exhibition series with the Seattle Metropolitans. The series was cancelled because of the Great Influenza Epidemic. The Americans still like to refer to 1919 as "no decision."

In 1926, the National Hockey League "adopted" Lord Stanley's Cup as their own and have possessed it up to this writing.

Not every Canadian agrees with this "adoption" or the teams that have been proclaimed champions.


In an article in The Lawyers Weekly entitled "Does the Stanley Cup belong to the NHL or the Canadian people?" Tim Gilbert wrote, "If the Stanley Cup is not a charitable purpose trust, then the trust fails and the property reverts to the grantor, and outside the control of the NHL. As Lord Stanley was Governor General when he gave the cup, the cup may revert back to the Office of the Governor General. In this way the cup may truly belong to the people of Canada." Go to to read the full article...

What it comes down to is this: Lord Stanley, the16th Earl of Derby, Governor General of the Dominion of Canada, at his own expense, gave to us his "challenge cup which should be held from year to year by the champion hockey team in the Dominion."

Which means that Lord Stanley's Silver Bowl belongs to the last Canadian Team standing at the end of the Regular or Post Season!

There is no way around that.

Therefore, the Stanley Cup Champions for 2010 are the Montreal Canadiens!


And it follows that the "official" record books are wrong. Since only teams from the Dominion of Canada can be awarded Lord Frederick's Cup, the Real Champions aren't always recognized.


Who then, are the REAL Lord Stanley's Champions? Which, from the original Montreal AAA in 1893 to 2010's Montreal Canadiens, was the LAST CANADIAN TEAM STANDING each year?

Concluding Rant:

Since Lord Stanley gave his Cup for "the champion hockey team in the Dominion," it's not the right of anyone but a True Canadian team to be awarded it.

Perhaps the Right Honourable Stephen Harper can step in. Prime Minister Harper has proven himself to be a man of vision, honour and a true patriot - as well as an expert on Hockey History. Shouldn't the Stanley Cup be put back in the care of the Governor General's office?

Since when was Expansion and Selling Out The Game In The States a "Good thing for Hockey in Canada?"
