He's probably our team best playoffs performer but just because he misses the net too often these days, we should send him away? Bourque, Pacioretty, Eller, DD, Gallagher and Galchenyuk all have 7 playoffs games or under FYI.

Now you want our captain, our most experienced playoffs forwards and our best playoffs performer anywhere but here while 67% of our top 9 have basically no experience at all in the playoffs?

Yeah great thinking there.
For some very odd reason which defy logic, some people are dead set against Gionta and/or Desharnais. That's why.

Let's see... last 3-4 years prior to this shorten season:
  • 45-60 points per season
  • 17-24 goals per season
  • 9-15 fights per season
  • 100-150 hits per season

Now put that on a 6'2" 225 lbs frame, on a guy who doesn't mind going in the tough areas, a guy who excels along the boards, a leader (wears the A)... That'd be why.
