The real reason is because he's a passer, not a scorer. Change the shootout to a two on goalie and he's probably a lot better at it.
I was sold on him as a young player and screamed that he should come in as a rookie....when many others said he need more seasoning. He didn't need more seasoning...his time was then...it's now obviously passed him by. He's now just a tremendously overpaid second/third-line center with good passing abilities. If it wasn't for his contract we wouldn't want to trade him...if it wasn't for his contract there would be a ton of teams lining up to trade for him. He's a good player getting way too much money on a young/mediocre team in a salary cap era. Whatareyagonnado?
That's nice...but why are we talking about this in the "team shootout" thread? Even when the guy was an 80 point scorer he wasn't any good in the shootout.
