I don't agree. For a long time he was NEVER making the safe play. He was the 3rd pairing scrappy guy with no skill that would STILL try and make that risky seam pass in his own zone. He worked on it a lot, and by the time he was traded, he was actually impressing people here with his simpler game. I always felt a little bad that he went straight to the minors in Anaheim. Glad he's getting a chance on an NHL team again.
