Fred Shero
Be more concerned with your character than your reputation. For your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are.
Shero quotes
A man with a dream of pleasure can go forth and conquer a crowd and three. With a new song's measure can trample a kingdom down.
Shero
Success is not the result of spontaneous combustion. You must first set yourself on fire.




Shero Fred quotes
The absence of Shero, a pioneer who studied systems in the Soviet Union well before it became vogue and was the first to add an assistant coach to his staff and behind the bench, must be the result of a vendetta. There is no other way to explain it.

If you keep your opposition on their ass, they don't score goals.
Fred Shero quotes
I swear I have never told a player to attack another player. In fact, I have told my players if they ever hear me saying something like this, they can break a stick over my skull. I ask only that they play aggressively.

Shero Fred quotes
Success requires no explanations, failure presents no alibis.

I don't live in the fast lane I live on the off ramp.
Shero Fred
I think hockey is a game, a child's game, played by men and to play it effectively you must have fun just like children do. I've been with too many teams in sports through the years where you weren't allowed to open your mouth, you weren't allowed to laugh, you weren't allowed to question the coach or anyone in authority ... You lived in fear. My players don't live in fear. They get up in the morning, they're happy and they go to bed, they're happy. And that's the type of person I am.
Fred Shero
He won at every level. He was the first guy to use video, first guy to hire an assistant, first to coach an expansion team to the Stanley Cup. First guy to use a system that involved the entire team. They said it was too late for last year's selections. He'll be considered this year. He belongs. Absolutely.




Fred Shero quotes
If you looked inside Freddie's brain, you would find a miniature hockey rink.
Fred Shero
To avoid criticism, say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.
Shero quotes
We know that hockey is where we live, where we can best meet and overcome pain and wrong and death. Life is just a place where we spend time between games.
Shero Fred
Arrive at the net with the puck and in ill humor.
Shero Fred quotes
When you have bacon and eggs for breakfast, the chicken makes a contribution, the pig makes a commitment.
