Editorial: John Hynes and Rod Brind’Amour’s different approaches to adversity yield different results

If you go back and listen to John Hynes talk during media availability this season, the word you’re going to hear over and over again is “adversity.” More specifically, you’re going to hear him talk about how he wanted the Nashville Predators, before they ever put a skate on the ice this season, to learn how to overcome adversity. Looking back to the beginning and middle of this season, this Predators team faced quite a bit of adversity. The concept of teaching your team to deal with adversity is not an altogether bizarre idea, certainly not for a team in the middle of encountering quite a bit of it.
