In real life situations we have empathy and accommodate those less able but this is sports. It's survival of the fittest. The Sens went too far out of their way with Regin. I won't deny his talent whether he deserves the 2C or not. When he's healthy this guy can play the boards, skate, hit, check, make plays, drive the net and even score some nice goals whether playing left wing or centre.

He's not the first guy to play with a shoulder injury but in most cases these were well hidden until after the season. Fisher played like that. We noticed his game had declined but the injury was hidden. Regin's injury is well documented so he couldn't hide it from anyone who would target it.

The player shares the blame but I also fault the team. In the state he was in he couldn't do anything normal except maybe skate. For me, there is no way he should have been put on the ice in his condition.
