He's not worth this contract but he's been insanely mismanaged by Krueger. Playing him with garbage fourth liners isn't helping him and the team, especially when he can do well with Eichel.
Someone bumped the thread again so I might as well revisit this.
When I posted here, Skinner had - 14 GP, 0 G, 1 A, 1 PTS (0.07 P/G), 13:36 ATOI
Through the rest of Kruger's tenure - 11 GP, 2 G, 0 A, 2 PTS (0.18 P/G), 13:57 ATOI
Through Donato's tenure - 19 GP, 3 G, 4 P, 7 PTS (0.36 P/G), 15:32 ATOI
He's improved but he's nowhere near a player that is making 10 million dollars in salary this season. Buffalo is essentially giving him a million everytime he shows up on the scorecard.
