His play over the last season hasn't been as good, likely due to his chronic shoulder problems. He used to have to wear a strap that prevented his shoulder from dislocating (which apparently was happening a lot) and it limited his range of motion. Not sure if he still wears it.

Basically you are getting at worse adequate 4th line center and someone who can play decently on the PK, to at best (if he is over his shoulder problems) a very good 4th line center who is great on the PK.

As for those expecting a physical presence, you will be sorely disappointed in him.
Thanks for the info.
