The media has had a field day with him and IMO that can never be positive for a young guy in the NHL or any major sport for that matter.
Im starting to think that Management and the media have ruined the guy. He was compared to an icon before stepping on to the ice. And is still compared to Clarke. Then is handed a HUGE contract before he proves anything remotely close to being worthy of it, and the C. But Richie thinks too much for my liking. Sometimes just shooting the puck makes more sences, especially when ur shorthanded. Giroux is the same way. Stop trying to make chicken soup with chicken **** and shoot!
Dont get me wrong i love the guy but its time to hold him accountable for some stuff he is and isnt doing.
