Captain of our historic collapse. We got rid of his competition in Subban. Brought mister captain Canada to help him out and he **** the bed in the playoffs again. The GM needs to realize this guy is a loser that should not lead any team. Trade him asap.
If he can't crack a Team USA top 6 as an almost 40 goal scorer, and disappears in that competition what makes you think he's going to EVER show up in the playoffs.
I said it about 3 years ago, he's garbage and needs to be traded. It's only taken 3 years for people to realize that now. The guys he hated are gone and guess what, they are about to eliminate a team, and the other is waiting for the 2nd round to start.
I can only defend him so much. I'm done. I'm open to trading him. 35 goals in the regular season is nice and all, but he's no-showed in the playoffs way too many times when it matters most. We made this guy the captain and he disappears when it matters.
