I never root for the team to lose. Even if there's a possibility of a No. 1 pick, for a team to play to lose, or for the fans to hope for them to lose, allows the rot to set in. Teams that win have a winning attitude. They play to win no matter what, even when the situation is hopeless.

This is exactly what Brendan Shanahan has been talking about this season: in Detroit, they were never satisfied. The flip side of that coin is, no matter how badly things are going, you never, ever, ever go for a loss. You need to have more pride than that as a team and we as fans need to make it known that we accept nothing less.
