Oreskovich isn't exactly a liability, but he doesn't do anything particularly well; can't fight, can't score, is inconsistent with his physical play
I think this is the thing that did him in. I remember AV saying that every player had to have a bottom line, one thing that they could do consistently and well at an NHL level to make the team... obviously Oreo didn't.
