They knew he wasn`t the fastest player around when he was signed. Why sign a player if u aint going to give him a fair chance? If you counter with " He was signed to make our AHL-team better", I`m not buying it. That is not very tempting for future free agents. I was actually never a fan of him earlier, but he has really started to show some skills the last 3 yrs.
