It's not rocket science usually the team that wants it more comes out on top...our intensity level in the past few games has been sporadic at best...Who are the warriors on this team? I like Lochead...but we need more guys like the Alex Friesens, Anthony Difruscias Chris DeSousas and the Andrews Agozzinos...Guys that were willing to do almost anything to win. I don't see this in our team right now. I'm sure I missed a bunch, but I think you see my point..Anyone else have any thoughts?

I totally agree, Chipper! This team really doesn’t have an identity. A checking, grinding team? A high-flying offensive team that other teams have to ‘game plan’ for? A defensive team that grinds out tight games that other teams say ‘Oh my gosh, do not go down 2 to this team, or you’re screwed’?
What is it?

Their identity right now is jack-in-the-box. Every turn of the handle you get a little bit of music but you really never know when things are going to surprise or disappoint you. The coaching was suspect last night as well, line match ups were bizarre and line composition effectively eliminated any chemistry. The selfish play of Kyle Langdon cost us any chance of winning that game.

Is there a trade deadline coming up? The Dogs have their import spot and their OA spot open. And IMO this team has a gaping hole where their identity should be. I’m not a GM, but if I were, I’d be going over my limit on my long distance calling around the OHL. This team needs a bit of a shakeup.

You might be right about the 7 part but it doesn't look like we will get the 2 part.

What I find frustrating is that in this game, probably 6 or 7 times the Dogs had the goalie beaten clean, and just fired it over the net, wide of the net, high glove, high blocker, 3-way passing plays and miss the net.

I like your analogy, but don't include DeSousa as he quit (demanded a trade) from the IceDogs.

Don't care there were reasons for that...he was a warrior. This team is lacking warriors.

Our intensity level has been absent, but for Lochead, Bruder, Tomassino, and maybe two others.
