Rumors of him being a third pairing scrub are greatly exaggerated.
Scrub no. Top 4 defender, No as well.
His TOI is largely was largely dictated by the PP by year end...
He was playing behind guys like Hickey and Strait - waiver wire guys.
He was never a great defender, but now his time as a top 4 has passed as well. No shame in that. there aren't many Nick Lidstroms in the NHL that can maintain their level of play late into their career.
Would you rather have him next year or see what Donovan can do with his minutes..
Give me the latter....
