Lou is serious in a way that McPhee isn't.

Lou is obsessed with winning the Cup and he is genuinely angry at himself, at the world, at God, when the Devils don't win it all. He doesn't care about "community service" or "the public good" when he signs players. He wants to win the ****ing Stanley Cup again and again.

The great managers--the multiple-Cup winners--are that way.

The whole organization ought to be filled with that attitude. The Caps are not like that. We all know it. I don't say it's a country club or a college fraternity but it's not a monomaniacal organization like the great organizations are.

It's Purgatory.
