He has what I refer to as "Tomas Hyka Syndrome." His initial brief stint with the Flyers in 2010 he looked pretty good (playing on a line with Mike Richards IIRC), putting up one point in three games and playing a solid two-way game. Ever since then he has been one of those players that has an inflated reputation. Nothing against the guy, as many have pointed out he is a solid 4th liner. But if he never plays another game in Orange and Black, he will be replaced by another dime-a-dozen fourth liner.
