I'll give him credit for his effort, but that becomes irrelevant when you play that poorly for an entire season.
at some point MT will have no choice bu to send him down a line or two, where he'll face "easier" competition, he's doing ok defensively but he isnt doing much offensively... Gionta is clearly on the decline, sending him in the SO or on the PP in hopes he scores and gain his confidence back is a waste of time. For everytime he miss his confidence diminish, and considering he isnt contributing offensively, last thing we want is the guy starting to doubt himself even more.
Guess both MT and Gionta will have to get that it's "le chant du cygne" for #21 and use him in a lesser role where he can have a somewhat
year and a half and bring something to the team, even if only defensively.
The guy s supposed to be a sniper, and his shot is gone.
