Remember last year? we found out both his shoulders were ****ed up for a good portian of the season. didnt stop him form scoring goals, playing physical ect.
I dont think Carter is one of the ones "pouting" over Stevens getting canned. He was playing like this under Stevens this season.
Pronger needs to be better. alot better.
Hartnell might be playing his way off this team. He is hurting this team more then helping it lately.
I think Coburn has caught "Pitkanenitis" He has alot of talent and can be a very good defenseman but cant handle adversity and is fragile menatally.
If this team doesnt come out with some emotion, some anger on Thursday night then they never will. what happened tonite is completely unacceptable.
I don't think Richie is not giving 100%, I just think he's feeling too much pressure, probably a lot of it self-generated, and it's affecting his play. He needs to relax and get back to doing what he does best.
Doesn't help that he's been saddled with a useless linemate (Hartnell) and now he's playing with Carter and Carcillo which is simply dumb by Laviolette.
EDIT: I should add that I also think Richie feels really guilty for Stevens getting fired, not saying he's pouting, but he probably feels responsible.
