Offensive talent yes. Drive to compete? Probably not. There is a reason he only gets 12.5 minutes a game with the Flyers. It's because he isn't very good anymore. Whether that's because of injuries, or lack of drive or whatever, it doesn't matter.

I don't think he can cut it anymore. And considering that this is the third team that seemed less than enamored with him by the end of his tenure then I'm not sure I want to bring this guy into this locker room.
