Defensively, I'll agree that he is below average. Offensively ... he's a 13-14 goal per season guy over a full season. Just the secondary scoring with the ability to score on the powerplay that this team could use ... if he wasn't skating with Belak or not playing so often.
Sometimes you have to look pass the stats and actually watch the guy play. I was a big fan of his, wanted him to be successful, saw potential. It isn't there.
