I think he tried to develop more of an offensive game, but I think that's better served in the AHL than the NHL. If you want a 4th line banger though, he's a good one. Didn't seem like much of a fighter though.
Personally all I want him to be is a 4th line banger.

How could someone coming back after 2 years of not playing, dropping 25 pounds of muscle and then playing 84 pro hockey games not fade near the end?
