Literally almost every NHL player, if not every NHL player, can say the same thing. Even AHL ones can say that.

If he was "fine" for a 4th liner and good for more then fists he wouldn't be a 31 year-old with less then one season's worth of games played over a career that spans 8 seasons worth of call-ups.

Don't know what kind of blinders you have on to think otherwise.
