Yea, for me (also must add I appreciate the honesty) I seen him play in Vancouver not so much in Florida. I seen a Omark type player (more offense) who wasn't committed enough to defense, and liked to take shifts off.

So I guess my assessment at the time was he was probably equal with alot of the forwards on the team.

People on the forum have to be rational and ask themselves what they expect from a player when playoffs/playoff drive comes and they need that player to perform.

Vancouver was a top team who could have used that offense, and thats a team teams are going hard at, and this player was basically mailing it on some nights.
