He has the talent to do it, he just didn't execute.

Consistency in execution of skills is what separates an NHL player from an AHL player, but it also separates a scoring line forward from a defensive line center. Regardless, when the puck is on their stick and they have an opportunity to make a play, they've gotta bear down and get it done...
Your saying that for him to create offense is above his pay grade. Nothing on this team is related to pay grades. Dumont the third highest paid player playing on the 4th line.
