I'm with you.

I've settled down from the loss, it's not emotion talking.

Thing is, 4th line energy players who have zero hockey skills are dime a dozen. It's not like White is some rare elusive beast. Energy 4th line guys have very minimal contributions. All that is expected of them is to take a shift, not get scored on, hit a few people and skate hard chasing pucks and hope that they inspire with their hard work. If White can't even do that he has no business being in the NHL it's that simple because there's a million guys who are bigger and better at playing hockey who could replace him.
