His contract in not hurting the flames anyhow, What the coaching staff has to do is DEFINE his role for this team and stick with him. Stop moving him in and out of the lineup and juggling him through lines 1-3.

Let him find his identity on this team and the results with come.

Thats my opinion.
I think the problem is that he is clearly a second line centre, but the Flames have 1.5 other second line centres in Jokinen and Backlund. If Jokinen keeps up his solid play and takes over the #1 role, then moving him down to play with Hagman and Bourque makes sense.

The problem is the inconsistent play of both lines, which results in constant "shakeups"
