Yeah, I'm going to have to go with this. It looks to me like his endless laundry list of injuries over the years has left him without the ability to condition himself properly for the long haul of an almost full NHL season. Not that it's his fault or anything, but still. Personally, I'm pretty sure he only stuck around this year for a last crack at a Stanley Cup.
