He went on to being not much of a scorer for the next 14 seasons.

I imagine him best used on an ATD team as a fourth line defensive presence who might make a good pass or shot on net once every few games, more in the mold of the veteran Carpenter who won a cup in Jersey.
I know, but he's certainly not a guy you can write off as having no offensive talent at all. I obviously see him as more of a defensive guy, but he can't be ignored as a potential threat to score from time to time. Sort of like a certain active defensive line forward from my favorite squad(who I actually don't think would be a bad pick in this context).
