I like it. "Fun" might be the way to go in the short term. I'm not sure how well that would work down the stretch or in the playoffs...assuming we can still pull it off. Here's a sobering stat, we have to win about 2 out of every 3 games left to guarantee a spot. With the way we're playing that might be tough.

I think accountability could be good identity moving forward, but maybe in a more positive light. Each player looking at what they can do for their linemates and the team. This might be what the next coach needs to bring to the team.

Want a slogan? Prove it.
It doesn't help that he was holding out for all that money and then comes out this year and plays like this. I wish there was a better guy to pin the identity to, like Kopitar, but even he's had issues. I wish Brown was the guy, but he just hasn't shown to be that player.

When I asked I didn't mean anything phony or a slogan necessarily. An identity can be something each player can latch onto throughout the year. It simplifies things and makes it all relative. I think the team is missing that right now.

I would love if the team latched onto the idea of 'overcoming adversity', especially with everything that's happening right now. They need to take a good look in the mirror and play through all this change and come out for the better.
