Better overall player and doesn't have a s*** attitude and bail on his team.
Flippula's potential is all in his mind. He's physically gifted, great skater, strong on the puck, persistent and engages in physical contact. I would not be surprised to see Flippula's point total rise once he can start getting into the scoring mentality. Either way he's a great, young two way center that will net you at the very least 45ish points.
Well my point is this could be the start of something he may have to deal with. It's like in Baseball when pitchers find out a player can't hit a certain pitch, word gets around fast to the rest of the League.
But I get what you're trying to do here.
Funny you bring that up.
Yzerman says this.
"His game has evolved in every year. He's a complete player, much like Michael Jordan in basketball. Every year, they tried to fine something wrong with his game, and he just kept getting better and better," said Yzerman.
Unfortunately I attack immaturity with immaturity, so it takes away from my credibility.
I just don't see the big deal about the candy-cane s*** Crosby does, when there are players out there who are potentially ruining lives (Cooke, Torres, Ruutu etc.). Yet Crosby cross checks someone at the end of the game and it's the end of the world and has less class than Bertuzzi who paralyzed someone. It's mind boggling to me.
