Anyway, like I said, the "Hes 22, give him a break" **** isnt going to fly with me this season. He has 2 solid seasons under his belt and is now the 2C on an upper-echelon team. He needs to play better, period.

Part of that is on him, and part of that is on Torts. Step could use a lifeline on the wing one of these days.
I think the reason it's so noticeable is because his skating is so effing ugly. i mean, he's got the most recognizeable stride in the NHL, it looks like how I skated....like 2 weeks after learning how to skate.
