"It was a little bit of an experiment bringing him here to see what he could do. And I think for periods of time, it was good. Obviously, he has 15 goals with limited power play time and limited minutes. But over the course of time here things have eroded and I think his work ethic has probably dropped off. Right now he's just not fitting in, so we'll see what happens."
