and they stood up for each other cause last year the team as a FAMILY.
they would bleed for each other and the team toughness came from not 1 or 2 guys but from every guy knowing that every other guy on the ice had their backs.

this year there is no bond. they aren't even a team no less a family. no one has anyone's back
These two things are great points plus losing Prust, Dubi, and to a lesser extent Rupp and you've got your answer.

I would love to see some big organizational changes but I'm not holding my breath.
