People need to learn to follow a team. There doesn't need to be a scapegoat. You don't need to scream at a guy you don't like, or ask for the coach to be fired. The fact that we have threads going at half of this team's roster right now is comical bordering on embarrassing.
Well said. I'm finding myself leaving the board more and more disappointed recently and this explains a lot of the reason why better than I could have explained it myself. Thank you.

Stepan has made some boneheaded mistakes so far, as have many other players. He's also putting up points, which others aren't, and he, like most of the players that are struggling on this team right now, has a long history of high quality play and is not about to just fall off a cliff all of a sudden.
