That could work if Holik's numbers took a dive, or if he just stopped being a top-flight shutdown center (we won't know until he's actually used in that role), but there is NO EXCUSE for Holik to stop giving it his total effort and stop using his body like he has since he came to NY. I don't care is the system sucks (which it does) or if everyone around him doesn't care (which they don't), he should still be giving his total effort and using his body to cause havoc in the slot and make life miserable for the other team. That's not something that any system or any teammates can have an effect on. It's pure Bobby. And until he straightens that out, he's living in a glass house, so he should not say a damn thing about what anyone else is doing.
