This was prior to him even being sent down. In his last year on the NHL squad he was brutal. All reports from Connecticut were that he was a very good presence in the locker room, a good leader, helped mentor the young kids, etc. Intentions were completely in the right place. He just isn't a very good hockey player anymore.
