i think this year was just a case of really bad luck... He is a streaky player and perhaps moody, but he wasn't as bad as his lack of production earlier in the year indicated.

He had a great pre-season, then hurt his shoulder, probably rushed the return a little bit, and came back to a team in the middle of a bad downward spiral.

he never found his game again (though at that point no one on the flames was playing well), and ended up getting demoted.

While he needs to be more consistent than he's been in recent seasons to warrant a 3M$ cap hit, I don't think it's too far fetched to think that he'll be a solid contributor next year for whomever he ends up playing for (be it the flames, or someone else after getting bought out).

i was in favor of the habs claiming him earlier in the year on re-call waivers, and if they buy him out, I'd take him with the habs @ ~2M$.
