#214: Power Play – Respect

Heart and Ice Power Play - Respect

The Columbus Blue Jackets pass by this quote every game before stepping onto the ice.  With confidence, you don’t fear any opponent or obstacle because you know that you can conquer it.  You play to win rather than playing not to lose.  At the same time, you respect every opponent as a human being who is going after the same thing as you, but also as someone who could beat you.  Don’t underestimate your competition, but also don’t underestimate yourself.

Game Plan:  Don’t lose before you’ve even begun.  Be confident in your abilities, but also don’t sell your opponent short.  You have to put in the work whether you’re facing the Panthers or the Blackhawks.
