The problem is that he is costing the habs at least 1 goal a game with his recent pinches. He has been a minus player in 7 of his last night games, some of them -2, and the majority of those minuses come from him failing a pinch, or getting beat on the backcheck.

He's too slow now to be playing so much even strength time. Problem is that the habs don't have anyone better to play top 4 5 on 5 minutes. Next season it won't be too bad though

Emelin Diaz can take the majority of 5 on 5 time leaving Markov Bouillon/rookie/UFA to play less even strength minutes.
