He has a good game every now and then but not nearly often enough to justify keeping him. His skating has deteriorated since the Olympic break.

He is also one of the worst defenders on the team... we saw last season that he cannot play 4th line center because he does not play the type of two-way, heavy forecheck game that is required of that position. So when his offensive game really tails off, he will be unable to play on the 4th line like Drury did towards the end of his career.
