Its that I don't like Vlas, but I'm not going to let that change the fact that he, and most of the team deserve to be criticized for not getting the job done, especially since they have the ability, but simply don't put the effort in. Hockey is all about Desire.
Quite a simplistic approach to a very complicated game. No team sport is about any one thing. And trying to pass it off as such is disingenuous. People love to praise the teams from the early years when they upset the Wings and Flames in the first round and I don't know many people who would say that they didn't have the desire. Those teams didn't get the job done either.
Your dispute of being irrational is predicated on a bias just like you allude to with the rose-colored glasses being off. There's another shade of glasses that is just as biased and you have them on in full force, buddy.
