You're flat out wrong.

Toronto used him on the bottom pairing/2nd PP unit.

The dude was a -18 in his first 20 games as a Leaf. Only 11 times did he play over 15 minutes in a game - and four of those 11 were under 15:30 in the game.

He did not register his first point as a Leaf until December 14. He did not register a + in a game until February 8. He had six games in which he was a + player vs 17 where he was a - player.

He is just as awful as we say he is, perhaps even moreso.
