I can't remember the last time a hit of his actually intimidated anybody or favorably turned a play.
He'd be much more serviceable if he didn't throw any hits but simply stayed back, blocked shots and cleared pucks well.
Well said. A few months without hockey and people are already forgetting just how bad the guy really is and no system is going to change that (other than hide his defficiencies a little). Once the season starts he'll start getting run out of town again because he's costing his team games, even with the 10-15 minutes he's on the ice.
