That and I suspect (but am not certain) that Erixon's still not playing the body like the front office would like him to do. "Yes, Tim, we get it. You pass and you shoot and you move the puck. You're awesome at that. We love that you're awesome at that. But we think you could also be awesome at this other thing here, so we really need you to start trying to do that..."

Remember - when you're a hockey fan, it's not "reckless driving", it's "good forechecking".
