I think his biggest flaw is the fact that he shies away from paying the price when it comes to getting the puck out of the corners. He has no problems laying the hit if the other guy is near the boards first. But if he 's skating to be there first - and he often can be because of his speed - and he gets the whiff of an opposing player barreling down, he'll hesitate to avoid being hit and paying the price for getting the puck. I think this is why Gainey didn't seem to like him much.

Also, compared to before, his defensive play was pretty bad last season. Notice how the PK started to perform better once he got taken off of it?

Otherwise, great speed and gets a ton of scoring chances. I quite enjoyed his 4 goal game against Philly last year. He should be able to land a decent contract somewhere.
