I agree with rikster.
Well, actually Rikster agrees with me because I said it first
Jovo is miscast as a player who can handle the responsibilities being given to him. It didn't work last season, and I don't think it is going to work this season.
Sooner or later crawford is going to have to realize that it isn't working and it's causing too much pressure on him to think offense first before he has taken care of his defensive responsibilities.
If's crawford's play, Jovo and the rest are merely actors. It's up to Nonis and Crawford to as the director and producer to get the right actors for the job.
But sometimes, maybe the damn play just isn't working! And maybe sometimes a couple a lines in the play need to get switched around to give it more flow and let the actors become comfortable with their characters.
Jovo is great talent and capable of doing great things at both ends of the rink. I think we need to manage that better.
