About the sports psychologist...I think he's playing just a little timid since the concussion. I'm healing from a bad one now...just over a month into it. There are concussions...and there are minor brain trauma concussions... I get it. Look how he's seen teammate after teammate go through it, and Pronger maybe lose a career and life as he knows it. I don't think he's playing with the edge he used to. That's my two cents.
Simmonds might work, don't agree with Voracek.

Either way, the Hartnell-Giroux-Jagr line has been one of the strongest lines around consistently, I personally wouldn't touch it with a 10 foot pole.

Briere's just calming down to prepare for his inevitable playoff beast mode.
