Nice of you to include 98-99 where he played just one NHL game in your count. That just illustrated how slanted you're willing to be with the information you present to paint a biased picture.
2 of 13 "better than mediocre" seasons. Fixed it for you.
The cold hard truth is Legwand doesn't have a permeant letter because the coaches and Poile don't see him as one of the true leaders of the team. That's not to say he doesn't have some leadership qualities (puck retrieval). I know the Legwand surrogate mother club doesn't like that explanation and we heard all this "he's turned down a letter multiple times" hearsay. But the Tennessean article from Lewgand's mouth says it bothers him a little bit that he doesn't have a letter, but he doesn't dwell on it. Doesn't get much clearer than that.
It's good that he's on a hot streak now, but we know his effort goes up and down as does any points he gets. Hopefully it continues throughout the season and we can sneak into 8th.
