Yes, you can argue he didn't show up for the playoffs, the big game, etc. However, I feel you can't blame just one guy. I will remember his great shootout skills and hope they don't come back around and bite us in behind. It sucks he went to a division rival, but I feel playing better teams will make the Predators better. People have said that our division was/is weak which is why the Predators have done so well. I can't really hate the guy. I respect his game no matter what team for which he plays. I may curse him under my breath if he jukes us but in the long run will always like him. I'll miss you Paul. Good luck, except when you play us
I won't question PK's skill or what he sometimes brought to the table.
That said, I consider his time here, on the whole, somewhat disappointing, and as a player, I was simply never a fan. This has nothing to do with him leaving.
