I just find it weird, odd, wrong, dumb etc., that a player can be so good as to get drafted in the first round to the NHL. And then make the club. And then only have success with ONE player out of all the players he's come into contact with while playing for an NHL team. To me that says more about the player (not as talented as projected). It's just weird to understand that as a fan of Myers.

Overall, i think Myers is still a developing, and jumping the gun and calling him a bust or saying he's not talented to be a top pairing defenseman is dumb. It may take him another 1, 2, 3 more years to put it all together. Getting Tallinder back for the purpose of HOPEFULLY pulling Myers out of his funk isn't something i would like to see done. Others would, and i can respect that. Maybe salary and age have something to do with it too.
My honest opinion?

He's either injured, out of shape, or both.

Most of his "gaffes" this year have been when he's stop skating or gotten beat to a puck. I've never seen a hockey player spend so much time gliding around. This wasn't such a big part of his game even last year.
