Responding to an old post. I agree with your general opinion of White having an off-year and that he had to play in a crap system, but man you have to get off your high-horse of "I know how to play hockey so my opinion holds greater weight". Since when does not knowing how to skate make you unable to judge a hockey player. Is Peter Laviolette a lousy head coach because he never scored an NHL goal? Biased or not, Colin White had an awful year last year. Even a US Olympian (Bret Hedican) practically said "Colin White sucks" in a number of post-game reports.
