"I'm sure he's disappointed, and I would be too, because I think there was a real good opportunity presented to him. Most of the preseason games, he played on one of the top two lines and got power-play time.
For our staff, we just didn't see enough from him. He just didn't jump out at me. He's a big body, he skates well, he's got some skill; (but) you've got to be more involved in the game physically. When you play physically, when you play hard, the skill will follow."
