You know if he said those things publicly he was probably doing the same or worse in the room. Then recently Moreau basically said that it was being on a bad team and not him playing poorly. Just a couple of examples (among a number of them) that kind of point a finger IMO in Moreau's (not that I think it is all his fault by any means) direction. Stauffer's comments only seem to re-enforce what a lot of people wondered if it was going on.
And how many TSN turning point, back breaking dumb penalties did El Capitan take? I try to respect the guy for all he's done, but the more that comes out the more it sounds like Moreau was a big cause of all the turmoil. Solid work ethic and character, but leadershipwise very inexperience/immature.

As for Souray & Gilbert, well one guy actually looked like he put forth an effort on the ice and didn't throw the team/organization under a street paver. So long Big Cranky, hello Gilbert & Whitney!

Souray was downright painful to watch in last season with his complete apathy on ice given his previous season performance.
