Being down 2-0 for the second time this post-season didn't provide enough of a shock? For some reason, everyone keeps saying "THIS is the event that will light a fire under this team", "THIS is the event that will really get them going", "THIS is the shake up that will motivate them", "THIS is the do-or-die game they have to show up for." How come this team can't consistently play with that fire? Why is it only during the last 30 seconds of a game when they're losing is it they suddenly remember they should be trying to score and win the game? I'm so tired of waiting for the next "this." Just like Richards and Nash and Gaborik were THE moves to bring this team to the next level. Not saying that we could have known how everyone would have turned out, but we put far too much stock into these new guys to absolutely improve the team.

And we think the Isles have a bad mentality or have a losing culture? We don't even have a mentality or culture to begin with. Just a bunch of chickens running around with their heads chopped off.
