Don't quite get the depth of some of the angst against him here sometimes; it is not as if he isn't trying.
Personally, I like the guy. It's unfortunate, but if he's still having issues, this is a bad time for him to be recuperating while playing. It's definitely possible that he's not a "healthy" scratch.

I think that he basically has a free-pass from TNSE this year. If he can get healthy and back to his totals with the Caps, this move will look like a steal by Chevy. I still view it as a longer term, low risk, high reward deal.

If he WAS a healthy scratch, maybe he'll come back with the same passion that Thorburn did after getting scratched.
