I'm stunned at how poor he's been for us. Never expected it based on his past performance, though I admit I'd never followed him closely.
I really believe it's all psychological. His reads are just awful. He's squandering his physical tools, which sucks. He is an NHL calibre skater, and in the past he's played a scrappy, physical brand of hockey.
Obviously useless to speculate, but maybe he's dealt with some off-ice issues. Add to that the fact that his coach obviously doesn't trust him, pressure of his contract, etc.
If he goes to another team and turns it around I'll be happy for him, but disappointed that we couldn't find a role for him here.
