Well his vision and smarts haven't dwindled. He just hasn't adjusted his approach to his new speed limitations. He should play less minutes as well. He's an asset regardless but he needs the right partner to maximize his effectiveness and minimize his weaknesses.
While where he would play in actuality is irrelevant, I see his proper role as follows:
With the right partner: #2D - Second Pair, PPQB
Without the right partner: #3/4 - Second/Third pair tweener. PPQB
He simply can't be the defender he once was but he isn't chopped liver. Give him the right partner to handle the rough stuff and retrieve the puck and he'll be very useful.
