New Jersey Devils general manager Ray Shero has seen enough.
After the 57-year-old executive fired head coach John Hynes on Tuesday following Monday's embarrassing 7-1 loss to the Buffalo Sabres, he ripped into his players for their role in the club's 9-13-4 start.
"The Ranger game was disconcerting as well, but the Buffalo (loss), I'm not even sure how to explain that one," Shero said.
"We can't make a 5-foot pass," he added.
"Collectively ... I don't think there's any one player that is performing even at the level, let alone above, that we'd expect or maybe they'd expect and that's the thing that's disappointing," Shero said.
"It's not even one particular player, it's almost everybody, and that's the frustrating and confounding thing for both the players and us," he added.
Assistant Alain Nasreddine was named interim head coach following Hynes' dismissal.
