Let's face it, his skill set, regardless how developed in his time here, was better suited for an offensive role, a role he didn't the linemates for on what I called the "leftover line" with Glass and Bernier for large portions of the year. I realize he wasn't going to be replacing Kesler or Hank in the top two lines, and there were only so many wingers with any kind of talent for putting pucks in the net, but with those two, or at best a "already checked out Demitra", he didn't perform as I think he could have, nor do I think Vignault got him the thought of his preseason performance out of mind. San Jose gave him some better linemates, and while he wasn't a ppg player, he did look miles ahead of how he looked here.

And don't be afraid to question my logic or statements, the worst that will happen is that we'll disagree. Don't call me a ******** and I promise I'll do the same.
