vinny is still incredibly young! give the guy some slack.. he'll be a top superstar one day

he was the most dominant bolt on the ice in game 2.. calgary has to do a better job physically with him... it'll be tough but we can do it

That's a reputation he earned two or three years ago. For whatever reason, it still sticks. (My guess: Because the type of people who are most likely to go around foisting their opinions on an unsuspecting public are the same type of people who tend to pass judgment on a player based on one or two games.) If you're saying that Lecavalier's production has been inconsistent, that's not entirely inaccurate. However, if you're saying his effort hasn't been consistent, you'd be off the mark. Even at his most erratic, Lecavalier is far from being "one of the most inconsistent players in the NHL." Not even close.

So tell me what the bastion of consistency Jarome Iginla accomplished last night in Game 2 besides talk smack to the winner's bench after being held to two shots in the game?

I'd take Vinny over Iggy at this point in the playoffs.

Let the name calling begin.

fair enough. You have to remember though that Vinny is playing without the responsbility of captainship, on an offensive minded squad with a bunch of offensive players. Iggy is playing with Conroy and Gelinas/Simon/Saprykin in a defense first system.

Some of vinny's best overall play and especially leadership came when he had the C. The C almost gave him super powers, he didn't loose captaincy because he sucked or couldn't handle the pressure. New ownership thought it was to soon and a training camp holdout got it taken away. Seems like your trying to make excuses because one guy wears a C.

Maybe also because many hockey analysts said Gretzky left him off for that reason?

I'm not sure exactly what you're asking, but I think I agree that the ill-informed opinions of North America's lazy hockey analysts are a huge reason that most of the league's fans still judge players based on reputations they earned years ago.

Gretzky is only one guy. Others have input into the player selection process too.

If LaCavalier is left off the team, then it was a concensus opinion.

I bet none of the picks were concensus, they may have had majority opinions but not a concensus.
