He might have been an adequate 3rd line center 3 or 4 years ago, but the "elite" tag people added on that role was always a delusional fanboy assessment by people who remember the player who took a puck to the face nearly a decade ago against Detroit. Not what he actually has been for the duration of his contract - lazy and apathetic outside of 5 - 10 games a year.

Now he's a straight up 4th liner, and not a very good one at that.
