I don't think he's anything like Kesler, and may not score 20 goals a year, but I do like him for 10-15 goals consistently.
Don't forget the fact that he can be a real bugger. We haven't had anyone like Max since Claude Lemieux, & BGL attributed part of his aggressiveness last Saturday to the fact that Max kept him pumped on the bench. If people want to praise Saku for consoling Sergei, surely we can take note that Max did the opposite to our resident enforcer.

I agree that he can hit 15 goals some day.
