He's literally the worst thing on this team so far.
I agree, he's not the same player who used to give me headaches when the Habs would play NJ.

Cole is starting to show signs of getting back into it, Gionta not so much. Even when they are both in full swing, Cole fits our dump and chase system better than Gionta for the most part. Gionta has been pretty good at breaking up the other teams breakout attempts, but he's not that effective at retrieving and maintaining puck control on the dump in.

Overall with those two the problem has been poor decision making, and lack of effort, which is magnified by the two youngsters who obviously give it all every shift.
