(I am much more angry about this than I should be. I guess I just hate to see a good player being wasted).
In the course of the last 2 seasons while playing in the Top 6 with the likes of Skinner and Ruutu Jussi went from an already-mediocre 11g/23a (70gp) even strength to even-worse 7g/19a (79gp) last year. He of the "slick passing and playmaking" was also an integral part of the craptastic PP units that went 3-for-a-thousand in that season's march to miss the playoffs.

I'm more angry about a player like that making $3 mill a year..hate to see all that good money wasted.
