At one point his potential was considered much higher then that.

He had 20+G and 50+ pts in his rookie campaign! Many thought he could be a 30-G/70-PT guy. I think a poor combination of work ethic and poor surrounding perhaps has had him fall from the depth chart.

IMO he has a much better chance at turning himself around then Pouliot does (he has already scored 20+ at the NHL level). It will probably require a new environment and he'll have to develop a proper relationship with his coach (a happy player is generally a productive one).
