Gio will give 110% like he always does. Don't expect a 100 pt season out him. Be happy with 60 pts and the fact that he might be the smallest guy on the ice but plays like he's 6'9. Energizer Bunny ftw.
Not to confident with him as Captain. His abilities are fading, but heart will always remain. As a player, hes gone down to a third liner. I think their are other people such as Josh Georges who are more capable leaders.
tbh i found it a bit ****ing weird the huge amount of cheer-leading he did for NJ during playoffs but his bro's there...nonetheless for a captain i found it over the top. still a useful player. we need his 2nd line contribution until Gallagher is ready to take his job
It comes down to him being healthy and evaluating if that will be the case in the future if he is not than he will hold no value in a trade, so if I was MB I'd try to find out what are exactly the odds of him being an healthy scratch or not before seeing him retire or traded for nothing.
If Brian is in good shape than it's a no brainer that he should stay
