That said, if you visualize him as a physical third line winger, who could take shifts in the top six when injuries occur, then you've got yourself a reasonably valuable commodity.

I don't agree with those who think he lacks heart, btw. He has plenty of drive and heart - he just isn't very skilled.

I'd like to have him back because I believe that you can never have too many physical checking wingers on the roster.
His skating is impeccable. Stickhandling is not something you want from 3rd line wing, but he is streaky there. He hits well and offers good size. He is young and 3 million is what it cost to get a solid player. Are there better choices out there? Yes, may be.
I think Nolan gets rid of those who wont compliment his way of playing the game. It's OK. Unlike Nolan, Renney is comfortable with Euro players.
