  1. Myers’s this Myers that, it is all BS, as i have said before, who carried the load of time on the ice. The coach knows who he can rely on!

  2. Myers is a liability. He plays well when he wants to, shows flashes of greatness one minute and gives the puck away the next. He makes poor decisions in his own zone as well and has been caught up ice more than a few times. Lose Myers and you gain automatically.
