We just have too many Emmerton type of players.

I think he would be good defensibly responsible bottom 6 winger (I think he will be better winger than center) in other teams.

The fact at the mid-point in the season he was the second worst regular center at draws only ahead of 18 year old rookie RNH certainly didn't help him with a lot of people.

In other words, the Niklas Sundstrom syndrome.
