It would have been a smarter tact just to discuss the penalty minutes and not be so dismissive as to call it whining. Call it posturing, call it something else, but you tell a hockey team they're whining and you're going to give them a spark.
Do we really think Richards and co. weren't going to be fired up for Game 5 of a 2-2 playoff series?
