As many posters have said he needs to become stronger on his skates. He should be dominating the puck battle along the Boards. Chip and chase and get the deep pucks. Stop the fancy stuff in the neutral zone. If he were to start getting more dirty he would be forced to drop some of the cheap chicken **** stuff he seems to do and gain some confidence. He seems to have none now. To me he looks despondent and depressed on the bench.
If he isn't moved in the offseason (probably for little return), training camp will be his final chance IMO.
I wouldn't be surprised if he was traded for another "project" type player...Bergfors Skille Wolski Cogliano etc
