I'm not disappointed in Vanek above the rest -- obviously the guys who you'd expect to do that (and really, none of the players you mentioned are fighters to any real degree with the exception of McCormick) carry more of the burden. But when nobody (either on the ice or on the bench) does anything that game, everyone has some responsibility, particularly the ones with letters on their sweaters, because team inaction points right back at them.
