The Crazy Train has been a big wreck during his 53 NHL games. No goals, no assists, no points. Zero. Zippo. Nada.
Everytime he comes to the plate it’s strike two. A groundball out is considered traction. He is a forward with stats a goalie would be nervous about, he is a big man who can’t seem to find his way into good offensive places.
He is a man whose minor league numbers imply he’s a player but there’s been nothing but bad luck in the show.
I’m tempted to say “this is your last chance” but the truth is that if (like me) you’ve stuck with him this long there’s nothing left he can do to disappoint.
What can he do? Go 53 MORE games without getting a point?
If he does, I’ll cheer him in every game. When he does score, I’m going to have a beer and then I’m going to have another one.
