Thanks for the info.

tbh kind of disappointing for a team thats perennially in last place and trying to find meaningful identity and bonding.

With the best hockey team in he history of the planet, most of the players on that team lived here, (it was the exceptions that didn't) and most of them hung around most of the year, and nobody had to tell them to do that. It was viewed as a natural need. A need to know each other inside out. To do that and figure that out on their own. That the team was in fact married to their cause. To each other. You could say dedicated and committed.

Some of these guys today don't know the first thing about building team concept, dedication, sacrifice, REALLY becoming a team.. It doesn't happen twittering and emailing each other for 5 months.

No wonder theres always guys on this team that act like strangers in September.
