A professional ex-NHL'er clearly said that Henrik has to start throwing the weight (and presumably fists) around thus looking after himself.
I mean Craig Simpson must know what he is talking about right?
Isn't that what his ol' pal Gretz used to do?
Funny Leves. Also I remember Simpson himself as one of the biggest pussies ever.
Always hated him as a player.
Likewise as a commentator.
Funnier Doc. I don't remember Simpson at all.

As a coach, MacT gets a pass on that. It's his job to critique players and call a spade a spade. Frankly I wish Vigneault was as good at calling out a slumping player. MacT would have benched Raymond a long time ago, and Rome would never play ahead of Ballard. Luongo would also ride pine alot quicker than he does at times.....as he should.
As a commentator I found MacT a bit lame, but he was generally quick to point out a player's strengths and talk about what the guy needed to do to get back to being effective his his particular role.....if I remember correctly that is.
Lowe a partial pass because he was GM.....albeit a lousy one.
