He has a pulled groin, thus he's going to look that way for awhile, the problem with expecting magic from a guy that isn't a playmaker or a scorecer like as much as he used to be. But he's a fabulous 2 way player and that's a great skill, problem is the Blue Jackets have zero offense aside from Nash, with him off they'll be keying on Fedorov... a forecheck can make the guys with bad legs look real slow.
