I'm still not convinced that he's lost it though, because it can be argued that his partner (Dennis Wideman) has been even worse. We'll see how it goes.
Another poster mentiones the loss of wiz. Yes, I've been saying that his loss cannot be understated. They had a really nice umbrella PP with wiz at the point. He has alot of poise back there and the penalty killers really had to respect him, which opened up alot of options. I think Subban can attest to that the most.
They alaways wanted Hamrlik back, just didn`t want to risk another 35+ multi year contract...Hamrlik was offered a 1 year deal and chose to leave.
