Fine, whatever, but to act like he doesn't belong in the league and bash him like it's his own doing is ridiculous. But it's like it would physically hurt some people around here to admit that where he currently is in his career is anything but solely his fault.

Even with how poorly he's been handled, he's an NHLer, and with a better contract he'd have a place on other teams (and this one).

erick's dug his heels in and is intent on nothing short of demolition and it's distasteful, especially when you consider the bolded part, which of course is true. everyone's disappointed in the kid and there's no doubt something's gotta give but just get over it already. he's not THE problem with this organization.
