I remember when he was in Florida in a pre-season game against my Oilers. I said that he was the worse player I've ever seen in my life, he was slow and he took stupid hooking penalties. Then a short time later he is claimed by my Oilers. I thought my god what the hell are they doing, but management made it clear that they thought they could work with him and make him better. They did work with him and he did get better, but the fact remained that he was just too ineffective as a NHL player. Quite possibly one of the nicest guys I've meet and a real down to earth kid, but there just is nothing for him in the NHL.

He'll go to the AHL if he so chooses and he can make a decent living 7-8 months a year.
