No Excuses in New York

From Larry Brook at the NY Post,

“There are background story-lines for each one of us,” Shanahan said yesterday following a round of lengthy team meetings and a brief practice session. “With me, it’s age. With Jaromir, it’s not having Mike (Nylander). With Scott and Dru, it’s their contracts and coming into a new environment.

“Except there are no excuses for anyone. I think our situation is magnified because it’s the first 10 games of the season, but that’s on us. We’re not playing bad hockey, but we’re just making it very tough on ourselves.

“I think we’ve become consumed with scoring when our focus should be on winning. We’re putting the cart before the horse. When we get our minds off of goals, wins will come, I’m sure of that.”
