    Putting on my Moderator hat for a moment...........

    I suggest the two of you take your conversation to P.M. if you can't carry on without insulting one another.


    Can we just have them stop carrying on....but continue to insult one another?

    I agree, but the full-on effort thing is a little complicated.  I think most of our boys give complete effort under Berry as they did for Hak and Deano.  But a player has to have confidence in his split-second choices in order to commit to them quickly and with speed.  Some players work their hardest but are a little tentative due to lower on-ice intelligence, lack of experience, more cautious nature, or just lower skill level.  I think Stecher has a combination of high energy and high on-ice intelligence that allows him to move aggressively and effectively.   Not all players have that, and not all teams have that on their rosters.   We fans are quick to conclude when they lose that it is from lack of effort.  But even when they seem to be chasing too much or sitting back, that can be attributed to other shortcomings, and it's sometimes unfair for us to say the players are lazy or don't care enough. 

    You combine talent and confidence in a player or on a team and they will usually look like they are outworking the other team. 

    Or maybe not.   :D

    Definitely maybe not.
