He can actually pass the puck (often to wide open guys in the slot (possibly named Winchester)), he's incredibly loyal to the fans and team (SO common in sports now-a-days), a consummate professional, able to still stir things up, chip in goals and be a capable leader on a team.
Why some of you can't understand why he's a fan favorite I can't understand why you rag on the guy. The speed of the game has NOT left him in the dust as it has with many of the older guys in the NHL (yet anyway), and still contributes. What's the problem?
I'm not sure...
I often find myself yelling at him because he hasn't hustled out of the offensive zone while someone who did, stole the puck and tried bringing it back in only to have him caught offsides. He also needs to find a new move. Skating down the wing and stopping to cut towards the center just isn't getting it done anymore. Those are a few of the "biggies" that bug me.
I would be ok if they signed him for another year or two for cheap (2ish.)
