He still is one of the team's best penalty killers and do any of us really know if he may have a nagging injury that isn't being disclosed???
I can't ***** too much about him...he'll be fine.
I can't speak to a nagging injury, but there is the new child in the house and a new deal that may've made him a little more complaicent. I think he'll be fine too. He had a few uncharacteristic giveaways tonight and he looks like he's pressing pretty hard. If they can get him clicking with anyone, I think he can get back on the Drury-Grier line and spark 'em. There were a few signs he and Briere were up to their old tricks tonight -- maybe a few more games and he'll be back to form.

IMHO, Drury and Grier are bringing him down. He excels at digging in the corners and chipping in with playmakers. Drury and Grier are not playmakers. As I stated in my musings, I'd like to see him paired with Connolly.
if his plus/minus is good fine...he is contributing...but not on the scoreboard...he has this week to show me what he can do, and if its true he is with briere (cause drury is sucking too) then i expect him to be on the scoresheet.
Hate to say it but i told u all he sucks...he doesnt excel at anything, hes average to above average in most points of his game...
Make up your mind here, will ya? Does he "suck" (as you say), or is he "average to above average in most points of his game" (as you say). Where I'm from, average to above average is hardly sucky. I've been on record as saying that he's overrated on these boards, but I can't sit here and say that he sucks.
