There were a lot...A LOT...of reasons and things we can point to that could've changed the result of the series just because it was that close. Pinning it on one individual doesn't make much sense in a situation like that.
The players left it all on the ice. If they do that, I'm okay with their performance and that includes guys like Pavs and Couture who didn't produce much of anything.
Personally, my issue with the organization is their culture of veteran preference, lack of being proactive, and inability to consistently help younger players along. That was true prior to these playoffs though and that hasn't changed even though they finally recognized what their problems were this year. However, they've done this before and decided to go back to big, veteran leaders anyway.
If it makes you feel any better, it seems like Plattner has identified the "inability to consistently help younger players along" as a failing.
