What Happen to Our Hunger?

I just don't see the hunger in our play. Our skating at times is spectacular, but the majority of the time we are running around in our own zone. The urgency isn't there.

The willingness of our guys to go down and block shots have changed. And yes, I know shot blocking hurts cause I do it in my games, but come on! Your paid how much now?? Too many pucks to the net, too slow on the line changes and not enough hunger.

Thoughts?

Fix that and we are golden.

when a team believes they are talented, they will sometimes play under their capabilities forgetting what got them there in the first place with the belief that talent will compensate for lack of effort. it makes them a scary team come playoffs though though as there is another gear they can elevate themselves to. Maybe they have a prima donna complex now with such a talent laden team.

thats not what it is the flames have a good record against NW teams... tehir problem is losing games to Phoenix, COlumbus, Boston, Chicago... etc... they don't show up for road games and somtetimes even have trouble getting ready for home games against bottom feeders... so i would not relate what Vancouver and Minnesota are doing to Calgary not playing well... the problem is their road record... and that is mostly because of emotionless play
