When I see someone wearing a Cam Janssen jersey I pretty much assume they have no idea what's going on out on the ice until there is a fight.
It’s nothing more than a ‘freak show’ on the side stage. Sure it used to be a critical part of the game. ‘Tough Guys used to keep opponents honest and got their own star players more ice. Now it’s nothing more than theater. It’s enjoyable to watch, but it has ZERO effect on the game other then the fact that you are wasting a valuable roster spot on a guy that does nothing to help you win the game.
Like everyone else I remember the days of a ‘goon’ jumping over the boards and destroying someone because they got their stick up on Hull, but that’s just not today’s hockey.
It’s not as if Cam is out there laying licks and getting the other team off their game. He misses on 9 of 10 attempts to check opponents, yet the home fans cheer because it makes a lot of noise when he hits the boards (all on his own).
I hate that Murray has made me hate Cam, but that is what it’s come to. AM dresses him too much and skates him too much when he is dressed.
