The performance was night and day. He made Ericcson look like Nicky in comparison. He skated away from the puck, made little effort to maintain puck possesion and although everyone looked crappola in the Playoffs this year, he was one of the worst out there.
I dont understand the love fest for him when it was obvious he had zero intention of playing hard last season.
stats are games played, goals, assists, points, PIM, +/-
2010-11 Detroit Red Wings NHL 67 3 17 20 40 4
2011-12 Detroit Red Wings NHL 81 6 15 21 29 16
He played less the year prior and had almost the same numbers, I dont look at plus minus because that is a team stat. He wasnt helping as much and definitely wasnt manning up on guys like he did in the previous year.
