The below excerpt from the Washington post could highlight a lack of respect from Washington players towards Wittman. Sure, you want players to be passionate about playing, but not when it crosses the line and becomes a theme where 2nd-guessing and questioning the "Head" coach becomes uniform... Wittman on the team's selfish play vs Toronto: "We’ve proven over the last couple of years you can’t play that way," Wittman said, shaking his head. "And we’re getting concerned with, ‘Why am I coming out? How many minutes am I getting? How many shots am I getting?’ rather than, ‘What is the team doing?’ and we didn’t do that tonight and that is disappointing because we’re not good enough to do it that way. … We have to come back together. It is not about ‘me’ it’s about ‘us’ and it has to be focused on us and it was focused on individuals rather than the team."
