Gionta is so useless out there... it's not even funny. At least Gomez could skate the puck into the zone. Gionta can't even do that properly.
Like I said, I understand where the hostility is coming from. At this point I'd trade Gionta for anything and use the free cap space to get a real top 6 winger this summer, because Gionta is no longer a top 6 winger and is getting paid like one.

I don't hate him though, because he still is driving posession with Plekanec, but without the superior Bourque on the other side of Plek, relying on him for offense is becoming increasingly sad. There's really no room for him on this team anymore, he's no longer a 30 goal guy and he's one "smurf" too many.
