On the collapse

Okay, so the season is over.

Do we have theories of what went wrong? Talk Radio and other pundits suggest that Boudreau was too easy on the team. The team lacked the discipline to compete.

To me, I saw the failure in game five of the series.
Three to one lead in the series, cocky attitudes. Then they lose, at home, where they dominated everyone all season.
The series ended with that loss, as I saw it. They let the Canadians hang around and it bit them in the arse.

What do we need next year?

An ability to put opponents away when they are on the ropes. In the past three seasons, we let teams back into the game too easily.
Until we learn the killer instinct, we are stuck.

But do we have the staff to do it right now?
