I expect to get attacked, but I stand by what I said. I have no problem with Gionta's game right now.
He's a popular pro veteran presence.

Around here there has to be scapegoats... pretty much almost always.

Even on a win streak.

If its not Breezer... its AKost
If not AKost... then Darche
If not Darche... then Cammy
If not Cammy... then DD
If not DD... then Gio
