Also, Marty Reasoner SUCKS too, do you boo him mercifully? Probably not.
His presence has an effect on this team. I don't think too many people dislike RDP the PERSON. But, as a hockey player, he negatively affects this team. If they had the WAR stat in hockey, there is no doubt that his would be negative. He's played 42 games in the past 3 seasons. That's enough to have an impact. And that doesn't count ancillary impact from the perspective of the rest of the league that we are still giving this guy starts. If the whole Nabby thing never happened, RDP would be starting because you know Snowang would have not grabbed a capable starting goalie.

The league thinks we are a laughing stock, and he epitomizes it. It is unfortunate for him. I get he bleeds blue and orange, and I respect that. If he cared so deeply about helping the team, he would join the booth or some other level of staff.
