WARNING: this ain't pretty
2011-12: 45 GP, 1 Good one, 458 Poor ones , -427, 459 SOG, 753 PIM
2012-13: 65 GP, 0 G, 18 P, -1652, 1212 SOG, 1756 PIM
By my calculations, this amounts to the following data comparatives:
- 60% year-over-year reduction in brain cells
- 31% year-over-year reduction in post quality
- 18% year-over-year reduction in SOG - THANK GOD ITS LESS
- 90% year-over-year increase in PIMs.
And while it's nice that he does seem willing to throw the body, at times, and drop the gloves, at times, I really hope that we didn't trade a useful forum member for a bottom-six goon that will be lucky to get 1 goal per year in hopefully limited minutes. I'm beginning to wonder if ES has a bit of "Bettman" in him; capable of so much, too stupid to realize it and in the penalty box way, way too much.
Let's not forget that ES' hand was held by his mom in the off-season to try and get his training habits in shape (not a good sign), and even went on to be a healthy scratch in 1 (or more, I'm not sure) game, also (clearly) not a good sign.
Who else is concerned? I know I am...
