Many a people said that about Bill Cowher and the Steelers as well.
I think if you throw out Game 1 and Game 2 from the SCF last year, we win that series. It's a shame we lost Game 6. We outplayed Detroit and they got a few lucky goals.
I think this team lacks the locker room/veteran leadership it had last year.
Last year, it was evident to see this team hustle and work hard. This year, outside of Malkin/Cooke/(Kennedy when healthy), it's not visible for everyone. Part of me wonders if these guys needed to watch a 42 year old man to give his all on the ice so they could be inspired to do so as well.
