John. If there are no questions about his game then why is he not commanding ten million a year. You guys have this guy as the greatest talent since Gretzky but yet has accomplished so little. I listened to the interview of John Anderson on HC. Sure John was a bit miffed he got fired. He didn't say anything negative about Ilya, even though every question was about him but he never gushed about him either. You would think an all world talent and Anderson would be going off about him about how great he does everything.

John. Would he do all the little things required to win a Stanley Cup? Will he block shots like a Crosby, dig pucks out of the corner in his own end? Will he back check? Will he leave the ice when his team mates turn for the next line?

You guys look at the ppg in the playoffs this year and then he did it all but NJ didn't win. They had PHY on the ropes and Gagne and Carter sitting. Jersey did not play any better after the trade. It's not just about scoring goals-you expect a complete player at those dollars-franchise player-player to lead you too a Stanley Cup.
