As I said, I'm not big on headcases, but when it was game time, he turned it on. I'll take that over all-talk, no-play Gomez.
Cohesion of the team is important, I agree. But we ditched someone who could be second on our team in scoring, tops in +/- for nothing.
. At some point, if the guy is hustling on the ice, you got to meet him there, not make sure he won't give a **** about you.
I don't know exactly how it all went down inside, so I can't comment on that, but it's not like being outspoken is the be-all, end-all of attitude. He gave what he could when it meant something, that's a whole lot better than some of the pathetic excuses in terms of effort we have on the team.
Well said.. Or at least give him a chance to produce so you get something in return..
