Portzline: You have so many good, established players on this roster. Why isn’t this a better team?

Davidson: It’s a really hard one to figure out. There were high expectations from everybody, probably you, too. Everybody agrees that we’re better than what we’re showing, totally. I’m there, too. I didn’t say we were going to win  the Stanley Cup, but I said we’d be better. We still might be. But our best players, our core players, have not been good enough. Our core players have not played well enough, together, night after night for us to win. We continue to assess it, find out why and work our way through it.

Portzline: The brick-by-brick metaphor has stuck with you since Day 1. Are you still building? Or are you at the point now where you have to take bricks out of the wall because it hasn’t been built correctly?

Davidson: Both, probably. Both. You never going into thinking you won’t remove a brick to make the team better. As much as you want it to be, it’s never a straight line. Every day we’re looking at that....
