Its funny how I came across this. I am watching the Packers/Bears game right now and I can't help but think about how Jay Cutler can never do anything right. There was an article last year in the Toronto Sun (prior to the NFC championship game where he was REALLY criticized) that labelled Cutler as a quarterback who the Bears fans are just "expecting" him to blow it somewhere during a big game. The same could easily be said about Tony Romo. But what about hockey players? Who is a player who you just knew and expected to mess it up somehow at the end? Here are a couple of mine off the top of my head. Ron Hextall - You knew you couldn't win with this guy. He did great in 1987 and led the Flyers to one game from a Cup win but he did nothing after that to give you any confidence. Slowly but surely Hextall became a goalie in my mind who had a terrible knack for giving up untimely soft goals. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w0TEcfluM9c Eric Lindros - I don't know why, but although I was a fan of Lindros for quite some time and was cheering for him you always got the feeling he was never going to be "that guy" to lead you. I don't know if it was just a gut feeling but I never felt that way about him. Good examples are the 1995 and 1996 playoffs where he lost to teams that I felt he should have done better against. Then the 1997 playoffs where he played like a beast the first three rounds and then disappeared in the final. Also in the 2000 playoffs I never got the feeling he was going to be the difference maker when he came back against New Jersey. I was wrong, he was - for New Jersey - after being knocked out of the game. There was also the 1996 World Cup and the 1998 Olympics. No, he didn't "screw" it up those times but he also didn't raise his game to the level they expected. In Game 2 of the 1996 World cup final in a game that would have cemented Canada as the superior hockey power in the world he looked so uninterested out there for some reason.
