In fairness, almost all of his chances in the NHL were under Maurice, whose idea of "giving them a chance" was prove yourself on the 4th line, then I might give you a chance in the top 9. He did get some top 6/9 chances, though, so it's not all due to "lack of chances". It did seem to me that the Canes had a very short leash with him though.

He's only played 4 NHL games under Muller (1 this year) so almost all of his chance in the NHL came under Maurice who without a doubt favors playing defensive minded veterans.
