He is the worst possible player to put out on the PP right now because he doesn't use his teammates. They have no faith that he will make the smart, simple play. Scuderi, who has almost no offensive ability at all is a better choice because at least he will keep it simple and follow the system.
Ok, check Jack's turnover stats. You're being biased and it's making you wrong regarding his tendancy to turn the puck over. Yes, he peeled off on the PP yesterday and then regrouped but if you don't think he made the right decision doing so you again are biased. There was a forward line change which would have made the play a 4 on 1. One of your biggest beefs with Brown is that he does exactly what you condemn JJ for not doing. He made the right play. I won't even respond to you saying he can't hit the net since I already did. Terry Murray even mentioned Jack as one of the teams best passers because he sends the puck to a point instead of where the player was. Are you really dogging Jack for not using wrist shots? Jarred Stoll man. Jarred Stoll.
You are so wrong about not using his teammates. You are just talking out of your ass to help your debate. Jack defering to his teammates is his biggest offensive issue. He doesn't shoot the puck nearly as much as he should. Please don't ever talk like you know what his teammates are thinking. Unless you have an open line to his teammates and discuss their trust of Jack don't talk at all. There is no signs of that on the ice.
