The league has already neutered the hell out of him by penalizing every hit he makes, and the Caps have done the same by trying to keep him on a leash and become a player he's not. I don't want him to think out there. He's much more fun to watch (and productive) when he's instinctive.
Yeah I get it. He needs to play instinctive, but playing high-risk, high-reward at the blue line in that exact situation is the worst kind of hockey a professional can play.

That type of leadership will never lead to a Cup.

Never.
