It's the actual writing that should be critiqued.
Dejan's latest is exactly what I mean when I say he's often reactionary and tabloid-like. A great big article talking about "disrespect" and the Penguins being "rebuked" over the Staal affair, that had he not been traded Staal would have become an "instant distraction" in the locker room. It's just nonsense intended purely to prey on the run of the mill yinzer who snaps at anything that can be taken as a slight against Pittsburgh, whether real or imagined. Everyone who thinks it over knows why the deal came to be, and it wasn't out of Staal's 'disrespect'.
Did he not see Shero and Bylsma's interviews? both seemed choked up about trading him.
