No it's not. Those guys at least come to play. I'll take a team full of Meyers' over a team full of Theriens any day. Talent is only a third of the equation. Hard work and heart are the other parts of the equation. We have the talent, but the hard work isn't always there. The heart has been missing for quite some time. Say what you want about guys like Forsberg and Hatcher being leaders, we have no real emotional leaders on this team. We don't need a "well guys it's time to step up" type leader. We need someone who will grab someone by the throat and tell them that they're playing like crap. We need someone who isn't afraid to get into another players face and call them on their crap. We have no one like that on this team. Everyone is all buddy buddy with one another. We need a tough old war horse, a rough SOB who can get down and dirty when the need arises. These guys are quitters when things get tough and that's totally unacceptable.
