It was two things...

one was his ability to keep up with the NHL pace, and the other was they thought he may be a bit too timid. Oddly enough, when he played last March when the games were more intense, at a minimum, I actually thought the opposite. He's a slowish skater, but a smart player. He further didn't seem to have a problem in his first 12 games and then he got to play with Jagr for one period, a period in which Jagr had his first 5 shots on goal, and Renney was then done with Immonen - 'cause he couldn't keep up with Jagr and that pace.

That basically sums it up.
