He had 15 points in 35 games playing on I'm guessing the third or forth line. Having a veteran presence like him in the AHL is not a bad thing and can only help with player development.
I want him no where near the Wings, but I'm just fine with him playing on the Griffins as long as he can hold his weight.
Was going to say when I watched some of the GR games he wasn't that bad. He should be nowhere near the NHL though.
