I tend to agree with you there. Yeah he would go circular too much on occasion, but I thought he brought more to the table than Bruce apparently did. He could carry the puck out of our zone well, and those circles in the offensive zone could help maintain puck possession until a better shot was available. A lot of "circle" plays lead to goals in the playoffs. I find it hard to believe that a guy who had 81 points in 79 games 2 years prior could suddenly stink and become the butt of jokes. A good coach finds a role for the guy, especially at that salary.
