Rick Nash, Derek Stepan and Danny Girardi are three guys I think deserve a ton of criticism for their play in the 2nd round. Mostly in the first round, too, for Nash and Stepan. The rest, whatever. McDonagh was fine. Stralman was fine. DZ was playing with a hernia. Eminger has limited capabilities. Richards is aging fast, which isn't his fault. Callahan and Hagelin were playing hurt. Brassard was great. Who else is on the team worth even mentioning?

It's easy to absolve the players of everything, though, when they're playing a system that isn't suited to their roster and they aren't given enough roster help besides.
