Tell that to all the fans who are convinced he's a top 6 forward and should be playing on our top line... Here's some food for thought in '07-'08, his shooting percentage was 12% (15 goals in 57 games), '08-'09 it was 10%, '09-'10 it was 7.9%, this year? 1.7%... See a downward trend?
He's best suited as a bottom 6 agitator, but he's skilled enough to do more than that, which is why he has so many assists. He works hard, he just shouldn't be getting anywhere near top 6 ice time.
But then when he doesn't produce much, we have to hear how it's because he's not playing with more talented linemates....
