Prove It Mark

from Jim Kelley at Sportsnet,

Recchi was and likely still is furious with the way he was treated. That’s understandable, especially coming from a player who gave so much of himself to hockey. But that’s also life in the NHL these days. There is no room for sentiment and not much even for players who have made lifelong contributions to winning. But the simple fact of the matter is that for all his talk about how well he had been playing before the cruel cut came, it simply isn’t true.

Recchi had five points in his first six games of the season, six in the first eight, but nothing in his final 10 before being put on the departure list.
