This is exactly what could be said of former New York Rangers’ forward Erik Christensen.
There is no doubt that Christensen had a lot of offensive potential. He is a great passer, solid in the shootout and has good vision.
With that said, Christensen never used the above-mentioned talents on a consistent basis. When he was not hurt, Christensen often found himself in head coach John Tortorella’s dog house and rightly so, since his play never fit into the team’s identity.
May be Christensen will be given a fair chance with the Minnesota Wild or may be he will continue to not do the things that made him an NHLer in the first place. The choice is really his.
