In all honesty, i believe that this team's downfall IS it's supposed star players. I think that the young core group of guys on this team are very immature. It all revolves around who else? Richards, Carter and Hartnell. I seriously question their leadership and maturity. They are unable to showup and play a team game because they're unable to respect the fact that it's what needs to be done. Their priorities lay elsewhere, such as in spite. In spite of their good ol' buddy Johnny being fired. We saw Richards colors in the Hitchcock situation. I think that they'll refuse to play into Lavy's system because it might not appeal to them or benefit them as individuals and I think that the older and more experienced players realize this. Which is why we sense so much aggrivation in the tones of Pronger and Laperriere.
Does anyone else see this, or am i paranoid?
The problem with your argument is that the team was in a slump before they fired Stevens. I think it has more to do with leadership, and the young guys.
