I'm with carson here for sure. I don't think Sammy is an intelligent player at all. You really don't know how happy I was when Sammy was gone, and how unhappy I was when Sammy was gone.
We put him on the point on powerplays. He wouldn't set anything up. He'd take a slap shot from the far point with no traffic. Nothing, obviously. On 5 on 3's, instead of playing close he'd seriously be at the blue line taking the crappiest shots with no lanes.
He'd show his frustration nightly. He'd take absolute dumb penalties. These penalties he'd take away from the play. Todd Bertuzzi does that. We do not need Sammy doing the same.
His skating is average. He isn't a good passer. His defensive game is bogus. He's inconsistent. He's lazy. I don't want this man back.
He also had the laziest passes from the point that would lead to 2-1 shorthanded opportunities.
