Again, I see this as no excuse for his lackluster effort out on the ice. A player earning that kind of money should be trying his best to perform and contribute out on the ice regardless of who is behind the bench - he owes at least that much to the organization that is signing his paychecks, not to mention to his teammates who are counting on him.
I agree. I'm not sure if Gabby does, however.
