Agreed. LaRose has got plenty of opportunities to produce offensively this season and has done approximately nothing.
His shots on goal indicate he is getting lots of scoring chances but not finishing them. Why is that? Oh, because he's Chad LaRose and he has zero hands. He has an uncanny ability to **** up every scoring chance in the worst way possible.
And if he's not scoring, he needs to be doing SOMETHING to contribute to the team. Which he is most certainly not. His -14 is second worst only to Brind'amour and Brind'amour at least has the excuse of being on the ice for a number of empty net goals against. LaRose's coverage on his point-man is unbelievably terrible and he is the worst forward on the team at clearing the puck out of the zone. He bounces off all his checks. He has the hockey sense of a frog. He provides nothing.
Chad LaRose is a marginal player who got lucky in a contract year and was able to con JR into giving him $1.7m/yr. He's a 4th liner who has only managed to put up 3rd line numbers over the last few seasons because of excessive amounts of time on scoring lines due to the weakness at wing. Now he can't even do that.
It disgusts me that this joke of a hockey player is a "fan favorite" and has his own Bobblehead Night coming up. Of course, this injury will just give the LaRose fanboys an excuse to use.
I love how the drones at the RBC Center cheer him when ever he has the puck and is rushing up the ice. When has that EVER turned into anything? LaRose rushing the puck up the ice equals a dump-in about 95% of the time as he has Craig Adams-esque skating/puck-handling ability yet insists on lugging the puck up the ice until multiple defenders close in on him and he is forced to dump it in. The only time anything happens is if LaRose is on an odd-man rush, which in that case the result will be a bad angle shot on goal and an easy save.
