Very nice post Kati.
I think, in a sense, that motivation feeds performance which in turn helps an employee to stay motivation. It's kind of an A->B->A formula. Motivation can facilitate a worker reaching his/her personal goals, and can facilitate the self-development of an individual. Once that worker meets some initial goals, they realize the clear link between effort and results, which will further motivate them to continue at a high level.
I wrote recently about the topic of the importance of employee motivation to performance, which I invite you to take a look at - http://trainingstation.walkme.com/why-is-employee-motivation-so-important-for-performance/#.UeOjJo0yZJQ Would love to hear your thoughts,

I know he played in the NHL a bunch this year, but wouldn't this help Chris Kreider as well? Is he not considered a prospect anymore?

@supermaz i think only kreider and maybe miller are ready to begin next season in the NHL - the others (and perhaps Miller as well) will likely play in Hartford, maybe mid-year call-ups.

Thanks Kevin, Adam, Neil and James for an essential - multiple-times-daily- stop for my on the interwebs. Always insightful, always with a bit of a sense of humor, always informative. Abit too reactionary at times ("we're a stanley cup contender" after a win, and "this team is terrible" after a loss), but again, by far the best there is. And I really thank you guys for continuing to make it happen!

obviously disappointing result. Despite being down 3-2, I thoughts the Rangers were the better team through 2 periods. Though they didn't have a good 3rd period at all - maybe they were deflated after boston's 4th goal. I would say there are a few positive to take out of the game - the power play (after the first one) was MUCH better, and they got some good movement and chances, even though they didn't score. Nash played quite well, and finally scored, which hopefully will give him some confidence. Callahan played well mostly. Hagelin was fast, almost had a goal, but a good save. Negatives - well obviously losing the game and now have to win 4 of 5 against a very good team like Boston. Girardi had a terrible game, a rare site. Bad timing though. Del Zotto continues to look lost out there. Brassard has cooled a bit the first 2 games of the series compared to the first round. Richards lost. Zuch quiet.

@boogiepicker Only issue I have some times is when Torts gets disrespectful to the press. You can say you won't talk about injuries, and you can answer questions to the extent you want, but don't criticize sam rosen or any other reporter because you're pissed off about the game. there is a difference between being professional, but keeping things in the room, and just being a douchbag.

Am I the only person who remembers who is the Rangers head coach? We're talking about Torts here. Doan will be play on each of the 4 lines, possibly during the course of the same game.

Any update from insider sources on Michael Sauer? The Rangers could sure use another defensemen, even with stralman coming back. Bickel is still developing, but the playoffs last year show that Torts does't really trust him.
If Sauer is not yet close to ready when the season's start, do you think the Rangers will sign a veteran d-man on the cheap (who's out there btw?)? or make a trade?

otherwise more plausible (if he's telling the truth), is that we're looking at MDZ, Hagelin, Miller, Dubinsky and a pick.
1 year, 5 months ago on Columbus Not Asking for Kreider, McDonagh or Stepan | July
Just to repeat what has been already said by many here, I like the Rangers team a lot. They were 2 games from the Finals. Most of their core talent is young and still getting better (with more coming). Yes, they could gladly welcome a couple of key players for improvement, but not at any price. Hopefully the days of trading all the youth (which is now the core of their team) is over.

Would Scott only be in there to fight (in what might be a nasty game 4) or can he actually play and forecheck? Because of the bad blood betweent the two teams, I think we'll likely see Bickel back in there somewhere, either on D (with perhaps Dubinsky or Scott on offense and Eminger a scratch) or on offense (with Eminger on D).
Whoever it is, likely only plays 5 minutes anyway.
1 year, 6 months ago on Dubinsky Would Play for Suspended Prust
I agree with the lack of consistency, and to be honest, I didn't see the Parise hit until now, which was dangerous, and should have been penalized, not to say maybe deserving of a suspension. That said, the NHL is looking to cut down on head shots, and not only was Prust's elbow (which in it of itself is not a natural part of the check) to the head, but he actually didn't go straight in to the hit, and readjusted himself seemingly IN ORDER TO elbow the guy in the head. 1 game is completely fair. It's a dangerous play, and could have easily caused a concussion.
here is the league explanation - http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=632199
1 year, 6 months ago on Prust Suspended One Game | May
@gravey94 disagree. not a joke if prust gets suspended a gane...it was a bit of dirty play, an elbow up high that could have easily caused a concussion. just because one can point out other examples that should have received discipline but didn't doesn't excuse the Prust hit.
If it was a Ranger that was hit in the same way, plenty of people would be yelling for a suspension from the opposing player.

Is Girardi near the top of team lead in goals this post-season? :) He does have to really cut down though on turning over the puck in the neutral zone.
And Prust will likely be suspended for one gsme, if Hagelin was in the first series. Elbow up high.

I think you misunderstand the role of the media. If being a fan were only about watching the game - which told you "everything you needed to know", why are there locker room interviews with players at all? Why is their post-game analysis and articles in the following mornings papers? For people who missed the game?
The point being that the media is the avenue in which the fans find out about the news, comments, analysis, and reactions that surround the game, and which are part of hockey, as they are with every sport. Again, Torts can still find away to honestly not reveal strategy, disclose injury updates, or call out players, while still being respectful the media, and giving his basic assesment about what the TEAM did right and did wrong.
1 year, 6 months ago on In Case You Missed Torts' Presser
It's not black or white. There is a much more respectful way of answering questions ambigiously without giving information or criticizing specific players in the media. Coaches around the league (in different sports too) do it all the time, and if it's done honestly bu respectfully, the media doesn't criticize them. But just giving yes or no answers is a disservice to the fans, and the media are just doing their job, which is to ask the questions. Torts acts toward them as if they slept with his wife.
a) the players should be blamed. They played uninspired, and were slow.
b) someone already last series "called out Torts to his face" - and Torts scolded him for being a wise ass.
c) What the fuck does that even mean, "call him out to his face"? Do you want a reporter to drop his gloves and challenge him to a fist fight? And then criticizing them for what they do - they write? Should a reporter, in response to a Torts "NO" answer, then follow up and yell " answer the fucking question"?
d) Finally, it's ok to like a coach, because the team has shown great improvement under him and has exceeded all our expectations this year. That DOES NOT MEAN that one has to defend him in everything he does. One of his poor qualities, which he should be openly criticized for, is that he is antagnostic toward the media, which in turn means he is failing the fans (as the media is the avenue which the fans learn things about the team beyond just the game itself). As a whole-hearted Rangers fan, and one who deeply appreciates Torts as a coach, if he were disciplined by the league for this type of behavior, I would not be upset at all. He's got it coming.
