I'd still give him good ice and PP time... but just maybe phase him back in the rotation gradually. Maybe that's already sort of happening. And obviously you couldn't have done it out of the gate, not knowing how some of the other players were going to emerge. But now... I don't think he's better than some guys who get less ice. No biggie, though.
there is nothing wrong with Gio , except one thing

HE MAKES 5 FRICKEN MILLION DOLLARS

he is a third liner making near front line money , and like I said from day one , a stupid signing , nice player , good guy but grossly overpaid

I dont care if he was a UFA , or if a bidding war came up or if this is the market price in free agency , when you pay this kind of money to 40-50 point players you will get burned at some point , luckily he has one year left
