Do I think he can turn it around? Yeah, I do. Do I think he's earned a bit of leeway while he gets things figured out? Yeah, I do. Do I think a complete season of mediocre to bad play for a guy his age might be an indicator of an impending (or already here) decline as opposed to just a rough patch and therefore warrants genuine concern and a discussion about a possible successor at that point? Yeah, I do.
I never thought he was a great hockey player. His skating is terrible, and doesn't have great hands, or a great shot.

He has good vision, and playmaking ability, thats about as far as it goes. He's past his prime now. Gotta get younger.
