Year 1 - SK was dynamite. He was nearly a ppg player down the stretch, and his stats look worse than his play due to the initial 4th line role.
2nd year was up and down but he has great vision and the rare dangerous snipe. Unfortunately a no show in the playoffs.
This year he was truly dreadful.
Should we throw him under the bus? Maybe not. But. His uninspired play, the "backcheck that wasn't", and the ongoing KHL comments is doing it for him.
The margin for error this year is slim. We need to improve. We need our assets to perform. Our offense needs life. The cap is going down significantly. We can't afford an uninspired uninterested forward at 3 million per. I think letting him walk for a year, tolling his deal, an possibly bringing him back in a year is a great possibility. Let him rediscover his desire and passion if that is what he needs ....
