And if he does get another chance, I hope it is in a completely diminished role until he can prove that he can play NHL level hockey with and without the puck and work on his decision making drastically.
He also was the Avs leading goal scorer two years ago, and the third leading goal scorer last year. He's having a really bad year, I won't deny that, but I won't be the least bit surprised to see him bounce back next year after a full training camp and hopefully a new coach. He's not this bad a player and the Avs won't have cap issues next season. It's also much easier to trade a guy who has a bounce back year and with less years on his contract. His value is probably negative right now and I think you have to give him another year before buying him out.
