Because he's hung his hat on a couple of players who dont seem to be able to get it done by themselves.

If Kopitar and Brown are not the guys DL keeps telling us they should be, is it their fault or his for not supplying the additonal parts required to get this team to where it needs to be? What if the kopitar we see and have seen for the past several years is the Kopiatr we are going to see for the rest of his career? Then its DL's job to add the other pieces. Blaming kopitar for not being as good as DL thinks he should be is DL's problem, not Kopitar's.

At some point, DLcan't keep blaming the players for not playing up to his expectations. He either gets more talent or moves them for players he likes more.
But how long do we need to hear that Brown and Kopitar have to play better before DL realizes that maybe, just maybe, they cant?

P.S. I do believe both those guys need to step it up, but alsobelieve that even if they do, its not going to be enough.
