I really think Lowe blew the coup in a vareity of ways. He publicly and financially anointed the Kids as the Saviors of the organization and gave them the keys to the kingdom.

By doing this he put unrealistic expectations on young players that are unproven and gave the fan base an unrealistic expectation for when they would succeed.

The kids have a feeling of entitlement because the organization has simply inflated their ego's and their pockets. I have no problem with Eakins talking down to them because in reality no one else within the organization has done this. The Bruins made some mistakes with Seguin, giving him a big contract too soon and allowing him too much freedom on a team of veterans and that did not fly at all.
