He was like a useless body on the ice every shift.
And which AHL callup will actually improve your powerplay over a 14 game stint, especially in the playoffs? It's not his fault if he was used in that role over Perreault. You guys are saying he's a terrible AHL call up, even though he's been called up every year, and a couple of times for pretty long times. He won't do jack when he's not producing, but that's also why he isn't a NHL regular. Bottom line is: Aucoin will give you a point every 3rd game or so in the NHL, something that only a small amount of AHL players are capable of doing.
