Maroon has NHL caliber hands, but is a subpar skater and a defensive liability. Add in the issues he had with coaches and at least two teammates and it was pretty much a no-brainer that he needed to go, despite his stats.
BTW, last season I was told off the record by a member of the Flyers organization that he didn't think Maroon was going to make it to the NHL because of his skating and a lack of commitment to working on the areas they wanted to see him improve.
Personally, I think he had worked hard to turn around the conditioning issues that were the biggest knock on him and had also improved a bit defensively, but I guess not as much as the organization wanted.
