I'm not arguing with you there. But just because he doesn't win battles or have a low center of gravity, doesn't mean that he doesn't have drive or grit. That's what I was disproving. I agree with you though, and that's why the Devils need to ship him out to a team that he would fit better on, in exchange for one that will fit better in their system.

Like for example, if the Devils traded Tedenby for Nick Palmieri.

There's a good chance the Devils package him with one of their extra D to fetch a bigger fish. Like if they do a Tedenby and Tallinder for Setoguchi package.

He just never really got any better after his draft year.

**** happens.
The one thing he just never got was the strength and his hockey IQ. If he developed just one or the other, he would be a very good player. Lacking both with his size and not producing is a recipe for disaster.
