He'll put up a ton of numbers on bad teams, because he becomes one of the go-to players, as there is nobody else. He has some skill, so he'll get some points. But on a good team, he'll fall in that void between the 2nd and 3rd lines, where he's not skilled enough for the top lines, but not strong/physical/defensive/energetic/young enough for the bottom lines.
He's not really here to put up points though, thats just a bit of a bonus for now. I see him as a good third line centre, very responsible defensively, with great wheels. I'm not saying he's worth a lot in trade - my point was that I think he's worth more to the leafs right now than he would get in return from a playoff team.
