For this team to succeed, AV will need a miracle.

When you can't string 2-3 passes together there is a real lack of talent.

Guys are passing into other guys feet, leading them to far, putting it behind them. That's not talent.

The the flip side is that when a good pass is made, we are having issues accepting the pass.

Brassard has talent, Nash has talent, Stepan has talent. Richards talent is fading (regardless of the start), Callahan to a much lesser degree

Callahan is a hard working player that gets things done that way. He doesn't have finesse type talent.

Zuccs, for all the love he gets, doesn't reallty get anything done. He's not a hack like the guys below, but I also wouldn't put him in the above group either.

Other than that we are very talentless.

Talentless hacks:

Pyatt - Boyle - Moore - Dorsett - Asham - Pouliot

And on top of the fact that we are limited in talent, we are very limited in heart, desire and physicality which really puts the team behind the 8 ball.

You can make up for a slight lack of talent by out working your opponent, but that takes heart, desire and physicality and we lack THAT more than we lack talent.
