He just can't skate anymore. It's really sad because he's a very skilled player, just can't move anymore. He's a great passer but he can't move into openings to create lanes.

I feel pretty bad for him, hard to turn it around in Edmonton too... the media and the fanbase have been dumping on him big time and he's always seemed like a guy who is a little mentally fragile to me.

I think a new start is what he needs but he won't play at the level he was at before.

because a 3rd or 4th round pick is almost worthless. Gregor is right, we don't need to be trading roster players for late picks anymore.
