You can stop avoiding my question at any time. Return the ****ing favor.

Hes coming off shoulder surgery, theres always an adjustment period after a rehab. Hes slowly getting his shot back, and I think he should use his slap shot more, which he notably doesnt use.
To answer your question, I was here, criticizing him as I am now. Scoring goals in bunches is good, but pretty ineffective. Half of the games he scored in were blowouts, he was essentially stat-padding so people like you can say how elite he is. The other half of the time, yes, he did score some big goals. At the end of the day, to be called elite, you need to make your presence felt every night. Something he doesn't do. Something Rick Nash does do.

And thank you for answering. While it has been fun beating my head against the wall, all good things must come to an end.

Just don't cry when Gabby's ass is out of here come the draft.
