im happy that he puts points on the board but his play style definitely changed after his below-average second year here.
Exactly...he is just biding his time and collecting a check and the fans sitting in the seats let him away with it every night . Lay the boos on him...let him have it...and Richards too and anybody else who goes through the motions . These guys get complacent mainly because we allow it to happen .

Does anybody think that guys like Girardi , Staal and McDonagh like dropping down to block shots when they see these 7 -8 Million dollar prima donnas backing away from a play because they might get checked like Gabby did the other day . That kind of stuff is noticed by your fellow teammates and it does not help a team bond in any way whatsoever ! Plus it certainly is not what you want guys like Kreider/Miller/Hags to see...is it ???
