Don't see why he's complaining. Yes, he got shifted around a lot, but so did a lot of other guys. At the end of the day, he had the 5th highest ES TOI per game amongst forwards and 6th highest overall TOI per game. Seems about right for a guy who doesn't play the PK and isn't a center.

As for his linemates, for 80% (or 79.86%) of the season he played with at least one of the following at even strength: Plekanec, Gionta, Cammalleri, Eller. The first 3 are bona fide top 6 players and the 4th is the guy he probably played the best with all season.

Whatever though. There's always a malcontent in Montreal, regardless of who's coaching. As long as he takes his agent's advice I'm fine.
