Are you referring to how he will slow down or dodge to avoid any type of contact whatsoever?

He's had bad luck with injuries since he's been here so I can see why he's apprehensive.

My problem is that Cammalleri is a goal scorer, so he is streaky. A deep offensive team (i.e. the Bruins and Canucks) could really use a player like that, someone that can have a nice long scoring streak but doesn't kill you when he's cold. Unfortunately the Habs rely on him offensively and his cold streaks kill the team.

Well I voted for him on the main board.

Put it this way, on a team always accused of being soft (something I don't agree with), Cammalleri is by far the softest player on the team.

One of the softest. Small, soft, average speed, bad defensively. Doesn't help the team much when he's not scoring.

I don't know at what point in the last couple years he became such an invisible non-factor... He just hasn't been a threat in a while now... It really sucks. However, I don't know what you mean by "soft".

What bothers me the most is his lack of compete level, lack of dedication.. not acceptable!

Avoid physical contacts, puck battles..

the first thing a rookie has to learn to do is winning his puck battles.. If I knew nothing about hockey and you ask me who are rookies in this team, I would answer Cammalleri first without any hesitation..

The worst thing about no.13 is the fact he doesnt create anything offensively, if only he was doing a bit of this.. You have to wonder if the guy wants out of the town.. Criss we pay him 6.5M per year, he could at least show a bit of respect wearing the Habs jersey..

His compete level is down but if you notice most of Cammalleri's big years he had at least one bigger linemate. In LA he had Frolov who could do the dirty work. I cant remember who completed that trio.

In Cgy him and Iginla worked. Again Iggy was a power house at that time.

In MOntreal you have the three water bugs all on one line. It only makes sense they shy away from traffic. That line will continue to get battered and over a season, they will start to cheat and bail out on plays

You probably missed the third, the OT and his lazzy shoutout attempt..

The guy gets SO many chances but can never seem to find the back of the net...

Wish we could have playoff Cammalleri all season long

He's gotta be hiding some kind of injury. He just looks brutal. It's one thing to be going through a cold streak but Cammy didn't just go and forget to play hockey. Something's wrong with the guy. He's a much better player than he's shown the past few weeks.

Do you really think he looks better when he plays with Cole? And since when is Frolov known for his dirty work? lol

doesnt like any contact skates away from the puck when a check is coming- never wins any battles on the board- pretends to be doing something bu actually not doing anything-
doesnt pick up his check well enough and wont make any physical contact on his check when needed
