One of those guys he's now behind got generally ripped almost daily by the coach yet never complained once and actually took less money to come back to the team that traded him away as a spare part. A second of those players is Sather's gift to his centerpiece. You got a beef, take it up with him. And the third of those players, quite frankly, outplayed Barnaby by miles last night. So who cares whether they were on the team or not last year, it's supposed to be all about who's the best players isn't it.
Oh, and no-hands LaCouture seems to be showing some pretty decent skills the last couple of games, including getting a shot off while being sent flying onto his ass and setting up Barnaby for a no-miss goal by knocking an above the head puck out of the air and onto his stick and then making a perfect tape pass through two players.
Jan Hlavac took less money to sign with the Rangers. Who offered more? And please, the guy has a career to think about. With one foot out of the league he was given a chance to play with a good friend of his where he enjoyed the only success of his career. He was worthless with better teams.
Yeah its about this season. So, you play the loyalty card with Hlavac returning for less money but Barnaby is a selfish cad for wondering why his role has been reduced. Where's the loyalty there? If you think that Chris Simon outplayed last night him that's your opinion. I simply don't agree. Matthew Barnaby outplayed Chris Simon for all of last season.
Team first? Yeah, I agree. And there was no one who embodied that more than Barnaby last season. He took more beatings last year to protect the aforementioned centerpiece and pick up for an indifferent enforcer than one man should be allowed to. Sorry, if given the choice between Barnaby and Simon, I'll take the guy I know.
