I try to stay as objective as possible about his play but I feel like we're running out of reasons for his constant underperformance. I just hope finally changing coaches and getting our transition game going again will help him out.
My theory on Staz is that he is bored playing on this team. Staz is a playmaker. It is very difficult to make plays when you are constantly dumping the puck. We need a coach that will let him use his creativity entering the offensive zone. Only then I think he will start having fun again and put consistent effort. It is a lot easier to put consistent effort when you are having fun.
However we must always remember that Staz will always go about his business quietly.
