Well now he'll be playing in Phoenix with the guy we traded for him, Marcel Hossa.
Remember all the cries with Hossa going to NYR - he was gonna be the next great thing!!
Edit: My bad, after his amazing season of 1 goal in 50 games last year, Marcel has bolted to the KHL. I guess Phoenix didn't care for what they saw in his 14 games with them, scoring 0 points and posting a -6. Yeah, that was a TERRIBLE trade, wasn't it? :-)
In other words if you have 4 centres in the NHL, 4 centres in the AHL, he'd be the 3rd line centre in the ECHL for Phoenix. That wont happen because Phoenix will move some to the wing so he'll be in the AHL.
