Nedved was sold to us as a star. Especially large hype considering the way he came in. He was supposed to be Bure light. This was before 10 million channel cable and the internet. And he came in soft as jello. That's why we hated him.

The whole team came in soft as jello after the 94 lockout ended.

He was putting up 2nd line numbers while getting 1st line ice time and most of his attempted shots went straight to the glass.
