How do you deal with being on the team that always loses?

I've skated C a few times in a scrimmage situation where it didn't matter, but never felt that I was 'worthy' of the calling in a league game. Maybe I'll look at it differently.

Just make the best of it, and the team has gotta focus on staying on your man. Wings on the point men, and stick to the boards. Just play basic fundamental hockey and outwork the other team. We were in kind of the same boat, and we just turned into a team that people didn't want to play against. We blocked shots, worked hard on the boards, stayed on our men which made it harder for them to cycle the puck.... We weren't fun to play against, but it was fun for us
