What about his time with the Caps & Penguins? At one point he was on the same line with Sid the kid! If he didn't excel playing on that line, then you have to wonder. Everyone keeps saying, give him a chance etc. What do you call that? Racking up points in the AHL is no small feat. But doing it at the NHL level is another story. You only need to be a millisecond slower to find yourself on the outside looking in. Look at all the players who have had great careers, putting up big numbers in the AHL, but were never able to stick in the NHL. Some end up going overseas in order to make more money. When you start comparing 3rd/4th line players you usually have a log jam of players who can fill the spot.
