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.
I agree with you about his 5 on 5 play. If the puck is on his stick, fine. But as soon as he's chasing, he's done. Personally I think it's time to move on in the summer if Diaz can prove he is healthy and just as good as before.
