You'd definitely have to add for Korpedo and Setoguchi.

Glennie you might as well, I'm pretty sure Dallas brass is still VERY high on him.

As people have already mention, the issue is not that he's scared, but he just can't win these battles. He probably ends up back in Europe at the end of this year. I hope one day he puts it all together, but like people said before, it's probably not with the Devils.
I think this is a pretty good analysis. If he could gain strength without the loss of speed he could be a good NHL player, but at his size, it's going be very tough to gain one without sacrificing the other.
