There is a tie in here to my unpopular Sjostrom-Betts-Orr thread; we definitely lost some of these qualities with guys like that. But I'm not ready to say all of a sudden in one year the culture has changed so much and we have a bunch of spoiled guys on this team.
You seriously don't remember the "lazy" posts about Jagr, Zherdev, etc... and the same knocks on Redden, Roszival, etc...

This isn't new.
