This is a quote that Herb Brooks said to his 1980 Olympic team before the Olympics. He did not pick the most talented team for this miracle team. He picked players that were the hardest workers. Gilbert explains in the book how Herb expected his players to follow the system to a T in the defensive zone, and in the offensive zone, he wanted them to be as creative as possible. He was switching from the traditional zone coverage to weaving all over the ice.
