It’s been a rough go for the Philadelphia Flyers early into their 2013-14 campaign. They’ve gone through one coach already and the puck just doesn’t seem to be bouncing their way at all. Fans don’t really see a lot to believe in from this team and, in a somewhat brutally honest quote from Claude Giroux, the team itself doesn’t seem to believe — at least not fully.
“We need to stay positive,” Giroux said yesterday. “We are a good team. When we start believing it, when we start playing like it, we’ll be a dangerous team.”
So, does that mean players in the Flyers’ locker room are not believing right now?
“Maybe they believe it, but they don’t believe it 100 percent,” Giroux said. “I really believe that when we start believing that we’re a good team, that’s when we’re going to start winning games. We’re not convinced that we are right now.
Okay, so it’s not as damning as you may think, but come on guys. If you don’t believe in yourselves, what do you expect everyone else to think?
And one of my favorite Bob Dylan quotes just because:
“I don’t believe in anything, no. Why should I believe in anything? I don’t see anything to believe in.”
