Who knows, maybe we have a center iceman free agent curse here in New York.

You think there is a sense of complacency after the deal? Or is it just a case of him not being as good as he once was?

Just seems like such a dramatic drop off from last year to this, based on what you've all said to this point. Really unfortunate, because all u fixations are that Brad carries himself like the consummate pro - but maybe not if he's taking games off.

Is it an effort problem? Or does he "try but fail to succeed"? Big difference there.
