Quit, no.

Stale message, for sure.

I think guys like Roy, Stafford, Vanek, Poms have been around him so long that they know what they can and can't get away with without losing ice time or PP time or whatever.

Just too much complacency. In 05-06 most of that group (not Stafford) forced themselves onto that team. Be it getting called up and playing too well to be sent back or just with effort. And vets got sat in order to give them time. Being up against the cap doesn't help that, because we don't have the luxury to keep an extra body or to around to push for spots.
