Of the comments, this^ summarizes it best for me.
Considered him more effective generally as a C, and they or he didn't maximize his shot.
Don't see there was another alternative to his inclusion in the Nash deal; seems like other players not good enough for Columbus to take, or too good for Rangers to part with.
