West Coast coach Adam Simpson is confident the drama-hit club can overcome the loss of Andrew Gaff and Nic Naitanui to win this year's AFL flag.
Gaff will miss the rest of the season after copping an eight-week suspension for breaking the jaw of Fremantle's Andrew Brayshaw.
Naitanui will also miss West Coast's premiership charge after suffering a season-ending knee injury in round 17.
The Eagles sit six points clear in second spot but they're set to be without star forward Josh Kennedy (shin) for crunch matches against Port Adelaide (away) and Melbourne (home) in the next fortnight.
If West Coast lose both matches, they could slip out of the top four and miss out on a double finals chance.
The on-field injury troubles have hurt West Coast's flag chances and the off-field dramas have added unwanted distractions at a crucial time.
Eagles integrity officer Peter Staples sparked outrage last month when he pushed and shoved two cameramen while they were trying to film Naitanui's arrival at Perth airport.
Goalsneak Liam Ryan is still being investigated by police over an early-morning incident that finished with him crashing his car into a tree.
Gaff's off-the-ball hit on Brayshaw put the club further under the pump.
West Coast's woes were compounded on Wednesday when it was revealed rookie Tony Olango faces an aggravated assault charge after an alleged incident in Darwin the day before he was drafted last year.
The intense spotlight on the Eagles has strained the relationship between the club and the media, with Simpson asking journalists, "Have we calmed down a little bit?" as he walked into his weekly media conference on Thursday.
But Simpson was quick to turn his focus to Saturday's clash with the Power in Adelaide and he was confident the club could win the flag despite the loss of Gaff and Naitanui.
"Of course we think we can is the answer," Simpson said.
"Every club has injuries and we've got a couple of injuries and one big suspension, which we've got to deal with.
"There's plenty of resolve within the club, there's a really good sense of unity amongst our players. "
Simpson said it was unlikely Gaff would train with the club for the remainder of the season.
Gaff, who's spending time with family in Melbourne, will return to the Eagles next week.
Simpson said although Gaff wasn't the victim, it was important for everyone at the club to show him some love.
"Obviously the Brayshaws and Andrew and his family has been the No.1 priority for everyone," Simpson said.
"But we need to start working on Andrew Gaff ... make sure he's feeling loved by us and put our arm around him as much as we can."
