Kinda hard to make plays when sharing a line with the likes of Jochen Hecht, John Scott, Pat Kaleta, etc.
His most common linemates are Hecht and Ott.

And while he'll occasionally make a slick pass, he'll more often rush things or make a pass to no one in particular.
If you look past his limited ice time and linemates that people like to complain about, he hasn't really done any of the little things correctly to earn any additional ice time.
He's a step behind defensively and does not want to or does not know how to compete on the boards at all.
