Very disappointed in him so far. And every game that goes by, I'm more disappointed. Maybe he'll wake up but I've seen nothing so far.
biggest myth in regards to fighters.
Tell me how many times someone has dropped the gloves and miraculously a team has pulled out of a 3 goal hole...
You're talking about 2-1 games where a little sway in momentum can make a difference. You're also talking about having a guy like Parros readily available as a bounty hunter to protect guys like the lil Huberdeau if he's being picked on.
George Parros nor any enforcer or goon will ever 'wake a team up' when they're playing poorly.
