He is underperforming and he doesn't use his size that well. He looks slow on his feet - that one season he worked on his skating he was a demi-god now he is just a nobody.
He doesn't use his body to make hits, that's why he's 2nd on the team in hits and 1st amongst forwards. He doesn't use his body to protect the puck and that's why he's one of 5 players, 4 forwards, who have a giveaway:takeaway ratio of 1:1 or higher. He doesn't use his body to challenge the opposition and stickup for teammates and that's why he got 4 minutes going after Brad Stuart. Pft, this guy's a "nobody", we should dump him.

3rd liner, big body, chips in an occasional goal, and becomes that huge role player in the playoffs. You can't have too many guys like that!

Which is still respectably below league avg salary. Players with comparable salaries are found here and none are too stellar.
