clearly so. certainly from this past season. i am wondering who he was thinking should have been getting his ice time instead. i think green was on his list and ovechkin and possibly laich.
btw...chimera is not a favorite here. at least from my reading he is right there with schultz below semin of those most want off the team.
Edit: Listened to that interview. It comes across a bit different hearing Brads actually saying what he said.
He called out Semin. He then called out players missing practice over questionable injuries. He then seemed to be saying that bottom lineup guys when they are playing well need to be given the ice time of the prime players that are not performing. This seems to be about his station in life and less about calling out specific capitals teammates.
He seems to back up the idea that Ov wants to win on the ice but not so much off the ice and that he needs to grow up. I am not sure where Backstrom falls into this as he never skips out on skating unless its serious.
