Please, how about pride? Z is known as one of the hardest working players on the team and in the league. I doubt he has just given up because he has "nothing left to prove".
I agree with this. Granted I don't know the man personally, but based on interviews I've read/seen with him and what people who've met him have said....he doesn't strike me as the kind of person who'd just "phone it in". Hank's having a bad season yes, but I sincerely doubt it's because he's just saying "f*** it" every time he goes out there. They're all trying, it's just not coming out the way we want it to. Insinuating that anyone on the team, especially one of our assistant captains is "giving up" because they've got a metric ton of trophies/awards, is strange. We don't attract that kind of element. No way the team brass would dish out the kind of contract on him they did or groom him to be Nick's successor at captain if they thought he was capable of phoning it in.
