Does ist even matter? The guy is not available and even if he were he wouldn't fit with the lowkey professional approach this organization is known for. If Z and D are as humble as it gets others shouldn't even dare to be cocky and arrogant. A former alltime top 5 defenseman wasn't cocky so no I don't think this organization should bring in problem boys.
I can only hope and pray we'll see guys like him or Kadri in a Winged Wheel I despise cockyness and arrogance especially if players can't back it up. I hate the trend of young players coming into this league and acting cocky, selfish and arrogant a prime example would have been Yakupov and his over the top confidence + celebrations. Hockey isn't soccer, basketball or Football someone should have told these players before they've entered the league..
I think Girardi would be a good fit, low maintenance guy who still has some upside.
This is what I was implying. Wings have a very humble, team first oriented locker room. I feel like his personality would clash with leaders like Hank, and especially with Babcock. Yeah he can back up his attitude, so could Randy Moss, Terrell Owens, Manny Ramirez and other world class athletes. Not saying he's even remotely close to the level of those guys, but teams shy away from those guys because they're a cancer to the locker room with their "me first" attitude. I'd rather get a player with slightly less talent that doesn't have such a big head.
