From what i've heard from the time he was in philly, he treated some teamates very badly (ie: Mark Recchi).

My personal opinion, I don't think this guy has it anymore, too many concussions, he can't play the physical game anymore and that's what made him a good player when he first started in the NHL. Conclusively, the Big E is damaged goods.
I think the "if he hasn't won a cup he's not a good player/not a leader/a terrible person/ugly" logic is the most overused and just wrong logic that's out there.
