The headline at Roto is what we have all come to believe: "Tucker has been a major bust in Colorado"
That's the deep-digging reporting we have all come to love.
This season has been disappointing for Darcy Tucker."This year's been a tough year personally," he said. "But all you can do is work every day; just come to the rink and try to have each day get better." The veteran inked a two-year, $4.5 million contract this past summer with Colorado after being bought out by Toronto. He was brought in to help ease the loss of Andrew Brunette to free agency, but has been ice cold offensively. Tucker has generated a meager eight goals and six assists in 56 games to go along with a minus-13 rating. He has been playing with Ian Laperriere and Ben Guite of late and has scored goals in consecutive games in an attempt to salvage his year, but it appears to be too little too late.
