Well if he said something like "in the room" or something similar, but he said "all in all", in fact using the word "all" twice.

Maybe the locker room is an absolute love fest now that Semin is gone. Maybe everyone knows exactly what everyone is going to give every night now, so on that front we're doing so much better than when Semin was here. Of course, on the ice and in the standing's we're sucking a$$, not "doing well"...

But I get what you are completely reaching at.

The bigger problem with Brouwer is WTF does he think saying that stuff now, right before we play them, is going to accomplish? I suppose he had just read that long understood sports axiom that says "its always best to provide your opponent as much motivation as possible right before you play them".
