And the idea that after so many of the same dumb questions he is going to step back and say, 'hmmm maybe there is something to all this stuff from the past' and put more pressure on himself is ridiculous.
I think what you are missing is the basics of it. When the Red Wings get into a good spot in a playoff series, the questions they get are about how they are going to win. When the Caps are in a good spot, its always first, "you guys going to lose again?" "how does your team avoid another embarrassing collapse?" "Ov, you know that you guys always still lose, right?"

If you dont think that takes a toll, then youre not being realistic
