The guy put up 35 points in 64 games last year. Basically, he's operating at a pace that you say would appease you, yet it doesn't. Certainly not his best effort, certainly not his best year, but in the context of our #1 center who potted only 18 more points in 17 more games, it truly boggles the mind that anyone sits here pissing and moaning about Holik is somehow one of this team's problems.

As for his critique's, I've never once heard Holik say "player X is really effing things up for us". Usually, it's more along the lines of "this TEAM is really effing things up". Last time I checked, Holik was part of this team and therefore, is including himself in the critique. The only finger pointing he's done is at the people calling the shots, Sather and Trottier, and damn if it wasn't all well deserved.
