Christian Fischer has been with the Arizona Coyotes for a long time. The team's ambitions are huge, and Fischer hopes they can live up to expectations. "I'm so excited to be a part of this group, because we're a part of a plan, and that's an exciting thing," Fischer said for NHL.com "You want guys that want to be a part of this and want to go through the trenches and come out on the other side, making the playoffs consistently every year." 5,6 of them have been on the team for several years and there is great chemistry between them.
"I think the best thing is to be able to go through it with the five or six of us that have been together through it all; that's the fun part," he said. "A lot of the guys have come and gone, but to be one of the guys to stay, stick it out, grind through this, and want to be here, this is such a tremendous opportunity with a team to go through this and come out on the other side.
"It's fun to do it with some of your best buddies."
Christian Fischer on the players
Fischer expects every player to give his best. "It's whether we want to take that next step and do the extra work," Fischer said. "Do that extra rep.
It's kind of cliché to say, but it's true. If you have three or four guys that aren't going to be doing that, you're never going to win." What he emphasizes is togetherness. The players must play together, they must show that they love the coat of arms they play for.
After that, defeats are easier to bear. "I always want to bring everyone together," Fischer concluded. "Some days are going to be tough, and we're going to lose a few games here and there. We're going to lose a few in a row, but you can't let that be a repetitive pattern, and you put an end to it."
