I should add that while i think he could play up a level, i don't think hes head and shoulders better, or too good to be playing in our level. My issue is that I feel the reason he scores so much is because he rarely passes the puck. He'd rather try to go through 3 players than take a chance passing to a pretty open teammate. He also tends to take quite long shifts. I fully believe this is because he is quite good, believes he is good, doesn't trust some of us and thinks we have a better chance at scoring if he is on the ice and/or takes it himself. He's a really good guy, its just frustrating to watch from D sometimes and i don't know if i should approach it, or how to go about saying something.

Anyone have any experience with a situation like this?
My team kicked a guy off for playing his shifts too long, criticizing his teammates, and never passing. It's been a much more enjoyable experience without him.

I'd suggest just reminding him to take 'x' amount of time on his shift, some players just don't pass and that's something you'd likely have to deal with.
