Under The Microscope In Winnipeg

from Paul Friesen of the Winnipeg Sun,

The morning after a 3-2 loss to Boston, their third loss in a row and fourth straight at home, winger Blake Wheeler acknowledged things are getting depressing around here.

“What’s happened with our team, we’re just so bogged down by all the negativity,” is how Wheeler began, Monday. “There’s so much negativity. We feel it... and it’s deserving. When you lose games that’s kind of the way it goes.

“But the biggest problem is not that we’re not trying... we’re just suffocating ourselves with all the expectations.”

Wheeler made it clear he wasn’t complaining about all the complaints. Or about having to answer daily questions in a voracious Canadian market.
