When your team needs to rely on Derek Dorsett to play hard each night for a possibility at a win... you're in bad shape.

At this point that's a chance I'd be willing to take. While the Flames would not want to lose Iggy, he will not hesitate to drop the mits. We need our capain to send a message to this group once and for all.

Thing is, I can almost guarantee Hitch has told him not to.

On that, you're probably right. but blast it, he needs to lead the way whether Hitch wants him to or not. And, there needs to be a players only meeting and soon, maybe a "captains practice" too.

And in Nasher's defense, I don't care if he's not scoring goals if he's piling on assists. He went through a stretch recently without much along the line of goals but he was playing like a man posesed and racking up assists.

I think that just shows again Hitch's failings right now; if the players know they have to blow him off in order to get things done, what are they going to do?

I thought the problem was they weren't listening (in my mind not listening = blowing off) to Hitchcock already. Which is it? They aren't listening to him thus the team has problems, or they are listening to him but his system isn't working?

You guys need to make up your minds on what the problem is so we can fix it. I'm tired of sitting on my couch yakkin it up.

*stirs the pot*

Depends who you ask

He claims they aren't listening (code word= "buy in"). I was just making a hypothetical suggestion, pointing out that no matter what, we're ****ed

I figured out what to do guys -- we need to sign that lady who beat up Phaneuf's little brother. She'll provide some fire in the dressing room, fo' shore.

I don't mind "glue" guys. You just need more the one. The players will hopefully remember that they did it as a group last year. Need some grit to go with the skill.

In other news, unrelated to the quote.

I think we've improved in some areas over the last few games. Moves in the right direction, IMO. I wasn't all that upset after this game. I think I might have been the only one that wasn't.

The loss to Nashville last night should put an end to the "we need a tough guy" argument.

We need a stay at home defenseman who can't be beat.
