Considering the huge variety of players who've struggled here in the same way, I don't think it's a players issue. It's almost more of a culture issue that needs to be addressed. There's a part of me that wonders what would happen if you could teleport the same coaches and players to the Habs; do you really think anyone in that franchise, media market, or fanbase would accept this kind of laziness or mediocrity? It'd be disrespecting the legendary jersey. But who really gives a **** if the Wild lose? They're just some expansion team.
