He was our captain at the time.

He was also at the center of a New Years eve incident where he and the team were celebrating at a Calgary restaurant, ran up a huge tab, and then refused to pay.

Its no coincidence that both he and Steve Staios (also involved in the dressing room skirmish) were gone off the team one after the other. The story goes they and Souray were very hard on the younger players. Re: a-holes.

I get that he wont be counted on to do much, but he is not a good player to have around.

On a positive note I will say that he and his wife did wonderful work fundraising for the children's hospital here in Edmonton, and he was at one time a warrior and a useful player, but those days are long gone.

He has struggled with injury problems too.
none of this is confirmed or fact just bull **** fan speculation. He's an effective role player for a cup contending team that's it.
