from Robert Tychkowski of the Edmonton Sun,
If this year was a sophomore jinx for a guy who’s only played 183 NHL games, he came through it pretty well.
“It took him a while to realize the increased responsibility and the burden of that responsibility on him,” said head coach Craig MacTavish. “He was coming from Anaheim, where if he wasn’t going (well), they sat him on the bench and went with other options. We needed him every night, that was a big burden for him early on in the year.
“To combine that with the expectations that everybody had based on the contract and the dialogue that went along with that was a big burden for him. I thought he handled it very well, I was happy with the way he fit in with the team.”
