[EDITOR'S NOTE: I can't speak to the translation or the veracity of the website...but still think this is, at least, interesting. - DDC]
There is a (what I found) very interesting article on one Czech web page. It is based on interview with Hejda. He is talking about Hejduk, Sacco and current management and coaching changes. I have translated several most interesting quotes. You can see and Google translate the whole article here: http://hokej.idnes.cz/hejdukovo-utrpeni-konci-zacnou-se-k-nemu-chovat-jako-k-legende-p6g-/nhl.aspx?c=A130527_202525_nhl_cig
Here is my translation:
Hejda on Sacco handling Hejduk:
He had no respect for the players and this was most associated with Milan. I give you an example: We are experienced and able to cope with the fact that we are not in line up. But for Milan to arrive two hours before the game at the stadium and only then to discover he is not playing, it's just silly. Mostly it is done differently: the player will know in the morning in order to arrive at the match, not that he is there for two hours waiting for a start, sitting in the stands and drinking coffee. This is twice as true when it comes to club legend.
Of course some members (of management) and even Joe Sakic did not agree with it but on the other hand there were several people who stood behind the coach. It was divided into groups.
On coaching change:
Basically I think it was a relief for everyone on the team because it was not working. I do not think I'd find anyone who would not agree with this change. Including me, although I did not have personal problems with the coach.
On Sacco’s system and use of players:
We had poor results also due to inappropriately chosen system. I do not want to say he was a bad coach but Sacco did not take into account the types of players he has. Did not adapt style to them but instead forced them into something that did not fit them. I hope that new coach will understand this.
On Hejduk’s future:
For a long time I persuaded him to give it another try. He said that if they change a coach he will go for another year. Now it only depends on whether he gets a new contract.
