1) His production is middling for a 2nd liner at best and he gets significant PP time and gets to play with our best centreman. I say his offensive contribution, taking in account opportunity cost, is not positive.
2) He is inconsistent, I don't know how you can disagree. Look at his game logs.
3) He does not make plays beyond the occasional drop pass. I don't know how you can disagree with this.
4) His contract is a drag, his position next to our top centreman is a drag, the fact that he cannot fight his own battles is a big drag (see: Moen and Tinordi having to stick up for him last night)
5) see 1, 2
6) It reminds me of Gomez. The feet are moving, the effort is there but the offense is inconsistent and unreliable.

It's a matter of taste I guess.

I don't want to dump him for a bag of pucks or anything but if we're looking to upgrade anything for next season, he'd be the first player I'd look at moving.
