Sure, he is having a rough time but just because he isnt a 1st liner doesn't mean he should be written off.
The alarming thing is he looked better when he first got here than he does now.

Ala Gagner.

It looked like he lost all his confidence last year and he hasnt gotten it back. I think what happened last year, how he struggled to start the season, in the Belanger triangle, Renney could well have ruined him. Some guys never recover.
