While I agree that his speed and instincts are good, his strength amd ability to win puck battles is lacking. For those reasons, along with his injury history and the departure of his offensive game, I doubt he gets another NHL job. Good for him if he does, but if I was a GM, I would stay well clear of him.

Nice guy, wish him the best, but the injury bug hit him way too hard. It's unfortunate, but I think he will play out his career in Europe. More time and space in that league might actually allow him to shine offensively too.
