Could you quantify or elaborate as to what makes him so bad? Statistically, teams scored the least number of 5 on 5 goals when he was on the ice and by a significant margin (Despres was actually the lowest, but only played 18 games). So if teams score the least number of ES goals with him on the ice, despite being in & out of the lineup and with a revolving cast of D partners, how is he the worst? Not enough offense?
