Are we really doing this? I haven't even seen close to every game this year that this disgraceful team has played, but in the games I did see, I've seen him hit post like three times, and I've seen at LEAST five great chances that he's set up only to have inept linemates fail to finish on. Even now he accounts for enough offense and that great post by the apple guy basically summed it up.

What exactly do people want from him? If you think he isn't worth his contract, well. You weren't going to get a guy like him for 7 million. Another team would, and then we'd be worse, even if Laughton is looking fine. Yes, Couturier looks better right now- but Couturier has better linemates and is a REALLY, REALLY good hockey player. Like if he gets any better, you're looking at more than one selke trophy in his career.

I just don't understand how you look at the team, then G's linemates, then his shooting percentage right now and think "he's washed up and those injuries have destroyed him and he was never that good anyways", especially when Hartnell is playing sub-NHL level hockey right now.
