And that's exactly how it is imo. The team isn't motivated often. I blame it at least partly on coaching.
When this team plays hockey the way that Sacco and staff want them to they are a very effective team. There has to be some sort of issue in the locker room for them to play as many flat, disinterested games as they do. It's not good for a young team. They also get down on themselves when something doesn't go their way. Possibly growing pains, but we need some leadership from a few of these guys. ROR and Landy are supposed to be the never quit guys, but they were just as bad last night.
Mark Giordano is the type of player that could help this team in the locker room. He is a never quit type player. He never gives up on a game.
