I'm at a loss for what the issue is on this team but if I were the coach I would try the following.
After every win the players vote on the top 3 players of the game and after every loss, the bottom 3 players of the game. Not a secret vote...they have to do it out loud in front of the dressing room. No hiding or secret agendas here. It would force them to hold each other accountable...nobody is going to want to constantly get called out in front of the team.
The top 3 get the next practice off after a win. After a loss, the bottom 3 dont get to practice and instead have to help the equipment and laundry guys during practice and then after practice they have to come out and do bag skates for an hour.
I think after a few weeks of this there would be a pretty drastic change as good players get rewarded and bad players get punished. Nobody would want to end up in the bottom 3 doing Sorry and sweaty laundry and sharpening skates. Everyone would want the day off...
