Question: What is so bad about Colin White?

The departure of Colin White, a member of the New Jersey Devils for 11 years, has generated a lot of talk about how the Devils up and coming dmen will be given a chance to showcase their talents next season. To be honest, I expected Devils' Nation, one of the most loyal and dedicated fanbases in the NHL, to talk about as much about what Colin White meant to the team over the past decade rather than what players like Mark Fraser or Matt Taormina can do with their opportunity in 2011-2012. It is always fair to look forward to the future because that is the "bottom line" in any business, but I think we did not give Colin White a fair departure on the blogosphere. Though White was never a top-line, shut down defenseman, he provided upwards of 20 minutes of ice time/game and was one of the main penalty killers on the Devils for many years. 

Then, it hit me! The reason Colin White's departure was not as heavily scrutinized or even mourned (the way we would mourn the loss of Patrik Elias) is because a fair share of Devils fans disliked Colin White, an argument which never sat right with me. Therefore, for anyone who would like to voice their opinion on why they disliked Colin White, the floor is yours. Please comment what you disliked about him (preferably something that can be backed up with stats) and why you feel getting rid of him will ultimately help the Devils towards future success. 

Or, more appropriately, talk about why you liked Colin White and what were some of your favorite "White" moments.

Have fun!
