I am not saying that he was a bad player. He even had a few nice offensive moves, once in a while. What I am saying is that he was a fragile low level player who benefited by being a local guy. He would have been traded or demoted long ago if not so. There are guys who did his role for less, and did it better.
How long did he hold on in Ottawa?
I have nothing against the local guy slant that teams do for marketing reasons. It is a market necessity. Just call it when you see it.
