He still has excellent hands but his confidence is shot. I'm convinced he'll start sinking them in around the net when he gets it back.
If meanness can be worked on, that's where i'd try to progress right now. If there's a behavioral psychologist on the board he could enlighten us. Watch A Clockwork Orange in a loop for 20 hours a day?
Trade him to the Leafs
