What's weird to me is that it seems like people have stopped talking about him entirely--I turn on WGR and I don't hear him mentioned,
he doesn't come up in Gleason's screeds,
I don't see him discussed much on here or other boards. But so many things---the awful defensive zone coverage, the power play, physicality--can be solved by this guy turning it on.
Do you think he turns it around? Could he be traded? He's such an interesting player to discuss. It's not just that he's fallen from elite to just good or even average--he's been legitimately terrible. It's funny--if his career had gone backwards, it would make sense, but how could anyone anticipate this kind of drop off?
You must've missed Sullivan's article from a couple weeks ago
