I don't think anyone thinks there is something wrong with what he said. I think the point is there's no evidence that the Kings have lost composure - they're not running around, not taking liberties, not taking stupid penalties, etc......both games 4 and 5 could have been won by wither team.

I think the OP is suggesting it's not a smart thing for him to say because it gives the Kings fuel for getting fired up for tonight's game (read: the piano on Gretzky's back - although this one doesn't really approach that one!).

Totally unrelated, sort of: Deboer's a smart guy. You ever notice he never uses any Kings players names? When talking about Quick for example, it's always "their goalie" or "the goalie". But loves using his players names. Obvious (and smart) attempts to NEVER humanize the other team. Interesting.
