Thoughts on the Usual Possible Factors:
-Game doesn't translate to NHL
-Coaching (loss of Dineen)
-Motivation
-Linemates
-Injury
-Off-ice issues
-Combinations

Thoughts? Specifically - why "so good" then but not now?
Option "B" has to be a consideration. Dineen is very good at bringing things out of players. Rolston? Reserving judgement right now.
