i think this is something that can't be minimized. good teams have good veteran leadership. the coach has his effect, but they and the players will both tell you that he spends almost no time in the room and that players hold other players accountable far better than any coach can.
seems to me that mcphee finally realized with his changes last season. wideman stays from that group and playoff performers like brouwer, ward and hamrlik(97 playoff games) are added. the fact is that these players come to influence ovechkin and backstrom and laich and johansson and green and carlson not to outplay them.
