When I say I want him to play with more intensity, I don't mean I want him to start banging bodies on the forecheck and getting into scrums in front of the net, just that I don't think that we will see the maximum value of his skills unless he plays a much hungrier game in the future. He just didn't seem to have any motivation last season.
Damn skippy dude. I'm with you 100%, he just doesn't compete hard enough because he isn't a hungry player. I honestly believe his talent and speed have been completely compromised due to all injuries over the years. He's an old 29 and I just don't feel he can return to a 40/40+
player. Perhaps I'm wrong, time will tell.
