Do we give Holmgren enough credit?

I don't think they gave up. I think they weren't physically capable of keeping up. I wouldn't be surprised if something similar happens to Vancouver this year.
I agree they were banged up, and really we probably could not expect a whole heck of a lot, but I just cannot find an excuse for the fact they would take the first period off, show up for the second and half the third, then just coast. This seemed like it was happening every game, if you are banged up and struggle to physically perform it should have been all game every game, but they seemed to bring it for a bit then would just quit.
I understand he was hurt, and didnt look right, but richards to me was just coasting around the ice far too much... and he was my favourite flyer so no hate.
