Lots of talk and speculation about Giggles these days. He's mad at Murray, he may have asked for a trade or maybe he didn't. He wants to stay or maybe he just has to stay...WHO KNOWS!!??
I'm really conflicted on this. On one hand, I really want him to stay on the team and be a productive part of it for years to come. He's a big point getter that you can't replace. But on the other hand, if he can't handle the pressure that comes with the big money and #1 centre spot, will he really ever be "the guy" who leads us anywhere? If a little booing is going to break him down, how would he ever deal with Chris Pronger in a 7 game series?
And by the way, contrary to what some internet types are saying, I believe that most of the criticism he has taken is warranted. He's a huge talent but that doesn't mean his faults don't exist. The complaints I've heard about him are true. You can't deny them and as fans, we have the right to express our feelings about him, good or bad. It's not like we haven't cheered him when his talent has shone and I don't remember him telling us to stop cheering. He has had many superb moments and has basked in the accompanying limelight. It goes both ways.
Jason, what's up. dude? Are you only happy when things are going well? Did you think 7 million dollars a year came without a price? Did you think it was all going to be easy? Are you going to bolt, like your buddy in San Jose did, whenever the going gets tough? Is that what a Stanley Cup champion is made of?
Or are you going to man up, show us that you have it in you and prove we were wrong about you?
How do you want to be remembered, Jason?
