Derian Hatcher watch: Game 14

Another game, another -2 in that pesky plus-minus column.

Philadelphia Flyers defenceman Derian Hatcher remains pointless despite playing 23:28 per game, and his plus-minus rating is still on pace (-100) to outrank the all-time record (-82).

Last night in the news:
...the Leafs scored their only goal of the period when Bates Battaglia showed the fragility of the Flyers' defence. With towering Derian Hatcher standing and watching him, Battaglia went behind the Flyers' goal, grabbed the puck, moved to the front, spun around and put a shot past Niittymaki.

That might have been the saddest thing I will see this season. Poor Derian did all he could do and Bates still had a pretty easy time getting his shot off.

When will the Flyers just give up on him?

Tiger would be proud. Woods, that is, not Williams.

Oh, could it get any better?

My dream - to see that punk Hatcher riding the buses in some Texas bushleague.

Should cut him some slack I guess - I mean it was Bates Battaglia after all!

This is perhaps the funniest/sdaest thing I have read about hockey today. Yeaah James- keep it up!

Derian Hatcher has sucked bone for all of his career. Glad to see people are finally waking up to that.

He's the most overrated athlete in the history of sports, except for David Beckham.
