And when he gets shut down he floats back while crying to the ref. That's the best case scenario. The worst case scenario is he takes a terrible penalty by attacking the player who committed the sin of knocking him off the puck.
In my mind, Skinner has negative trade value
because he doesn't help a team win hockey games. He's a detriment to his linemates and a detriment to his team. Any competent GM would be working the phones day and night trying to find a taker for him before the rest of the league finds out what every 'Canes fan knows deep in their heart but won't admit.
I forgot how lightly people took this section of HFboards. I came in here actually looking for a realistic discussion, I left laughing.
edit: lol that guys just started his own trade skinner thread, NICE!
