QFT. I find it sad to see so many fans stuck on the idol phenomenon instead of just enjoying the sport. I believe most of the athletes who've reached the NHL did so not because of pure skill, but because of their overall attitude. Low achievers look at the loss, high achievers look at the learning process... which eliminates "success / failures" stereotypes. Team spirit and focus on learning and motivation, these are the keys... we should focus on these as fans, then we could understand how sport really works.
