I'm glad THE TEAM is winning more games lately, but honestly could care less what Legwand does. I've watched at least 11 seasons where he floats on the perimeter playing uninspired hockey... the only player that Poile has ever called out publicly for lack of effort.
Then, there's this other gear he has, which we usually see around playoff time... the Legwand that's not afraid to go to the net, get his noise dirty, fall on his *** and kick it up a notch. It's the Legwand we are seeing now. And yes, it's the gear we saw 7 years ago when he got an extension. He's playing that way again. Good for him and and the team, but that doesn't negate the other 11 seasons of less inspired play. I have zero reason to believe he'll play with the same motivation if he signs a multi-year "retirement contract" into his mid-to-late thirties.
