Theres zero doubt in my mind that the players whining swayed Sather's decision. Richards was probably a main culprit given his history with Torts.

I actually met Cally this summer and spoke with him for a little while... he said the sentiment in the room had changed. Guys were really uptight, on edge, scared to make mistakes and that they were all looking forward to "playing" hockey again.
