To be fair, I think you're being a little hypocritical here. You're criticizing him for not wanting to play within the confines of the rules while acknowledging immediately before that that he's being unfairly treated by the officials?
He shouldn't have to learn arbitrary rules that have no definition and only apply to him.
No matter what an official thinks of him on the ice the penalty/non penalty stuff needs to stay the same.
If they want to give him less leeway as far as backtalk and slap him with unsportsmanlike conduct (which we've also seen) then I understand and I would expect Sean to shut his mouth.
And how can you knock him for not being focused? I think he's shown up most games, he just hasn't potted as many goals.
He HAS hit, he HAS forechecked well, he HAS controlled the puck in the offensive zone and set up scoring chances.
He has not as you've said gone to the net. I'll give you that. But as I said I think it's a byproduct of all the calls we've seen against him It's not hard to put 2 + 2 together.
