Which is something that has been somewhat annoying anyways because he blatantly goes out of his way to hit someone and loses positioning in the process. He got better about it last year, but it still didn't do anything but take himself out of the play in our own end.
I agree with that. The only real value I see in him is playing a tough 3rd like role, and he just doesn't have the intensity for that, especially starting the last two years, that he did in his first couple years. Playing a tough checking role takes its' toal on everyone, it's noting personal against him; he's just getting a little worn down.
