I definitely don't agree. Butler has been far worse than Filatov.

Filatov has been hustling and his lack of success can't be attributed to lack of effort, Butler is clearly out of shape and not mentally there: he can't receive or make a pass to save his life right now (his assist last night was fortuitous to say the least) and his man-on-man coverage is as sloppy as can be.

He probably needs some time off to recharge and get in shape and then spend some time in the AHL. We all know he can be good at the NHL level, but not right now.
