Why did his old team let him go?

Why did no one else sign him?
1. Fairly low, I would assume. He really is not a prospect at this point.
2. I can't say, not all that familiar with either player.
3. Small, weak and below average defensively are the primary reason's.
4. Fills an identical role to Clay Wilson, who outplayed him in his stint in Abbotsford.
5. I am sure a few teams were interested, however from an outside perspective it appears their might be an opportunity to get playing time in the NHL with the Wild.

He is a great AHL player that may work himself into a #6/7 role at the NHL level if injuries occur.
