Close To Strutting

from the Columbus Dispatch,

So yesterday, as the Blue Jackets went through off-ice workouts, Hitchcock was asked whether his boys have reached the point of struttin?.
“To me, you?re strutting when, instead of bowing your head when the opponent is tough, you?re looking him right in the eye,” Hitchcock said. “Whether you?re good enough at the end of the day, you play like you?re in it right up to the end.
“I don?t know that the strut is there just yet, because it?s a consistently high level of play over a long span. It gets to a point where it?s self-sustaining, where it?s just part of who you are as a team.
“We?re not there. But we?re getting really close to it.”
