Last I checked he had 72 points in his first year with absolute slop for wingers....He is an 80 point player when healthy, and when the supporting cast around him is performing. We can debate for hours whether he is worth his cap hit or not, but he is the least of the problems with this teams performance on the ice

Game after game they are scoring right in front of him. Is he playing to get Laviolette fired?

I'm impressed with the Panthers. They've stuck with guys like Weiss and Horton and built a great team around them.

When Keith Ballard and Brian McCabe are way better than Pronger and Timonen, you are in trouble.
I very rarely agree with you, but I have to here, most of it anyway....I dont think Pronger is as bad as you say.....Everyone looks like crap right now so I hesitate to pick on individual players.

As far as being patient with young players, I agree completely. We should have been doing that for the past few years but we kept moving young guys for the quick fix and look where it has gotten us
