PHILADELPHIA - Claude Noel dug deep into the coaching manual on Thursday morning.

The move by the head coach of the Winnipeg Jets had less to do with the Xs and Os and much more to do with how a team is supposed to handle a modest winning streak.

Thats why Noel turned to page 66 of the manual and found the chapter on how to avoid complacency.

When Noel didnt like what he saw during a drill, he unleashed a series of F-bombs during his message to the players, urging his charges to simply give a little more effort in what was scheduled to be a short and crisp workout.

I just wanted intensity, more intensity, Noel said when asked why he stopped the session. Were not going very long. I dont think thats too much to ask.
