He's been (barely) adequate in the defensive zone, at least, but it seems to have come at the cost of his confidence offensively. I'm really not sure where the coaching staff is going with the guy; in a game like tonight where we had trouble breaking out and getting chances, it seems like the thing to do would've been to turn him loose a little. If he's just going to play timidly like this, yeah, we might as well have kept Sulzer.
