Aside from skill, confidence is crucial in a team game. When you have it as a team, things just click. You are making crisp passes and finding the spots needed to score on a consistent basis. The team just does not have the confidence right now an they cannot complete a pass to save their lives.
As for the Gainey debate, it is not his fault that UFAs avoid us like the plague. He has to make due with trades that work out or stink badly like the Ribs trade. At times, immediate circumstances dictate the moves you make and at that time, trading Ribs was a prudent move, for example.
