Columbus Wins the Series 4-0

::deep breath::

OK, I've allowed some 20 hours to pass. The anger has slowed to a simmer. What to make of a record-tying 62-win regular season that ends in the unbelievable embarrassment of a 4-0 sweep in which the team looked, frankly, overwhelmed and uncompetitive? I've seen fans on the Twitter machine start staking out who they believe is the guilty and which individuals need to be burned at the stake, tarred and feathered, and made to walk the plank. And, I've been prodded to take sides in that exercise. Here's my verdict on all that: there's no angels in this tale of woe and heartache. None. This was a failure of the entire organization from top to bottom with seeds that go all the way back to last summer and the whimpering exit against the Washington Capitals. And because the lessons of that defeat were neglected for a full calendar year, let's be clear: there are no quick fixes or easy solutions to what's wrong with the Tampa Bay Lightning.
