Occasionally he could take a game completely over, and we saw the skill that he displayed for so many years in Detroit. However, normally, he just mailed it in.
The first year he was here the Jackets were completely out of D-Men. So Feds ended up there. He played really well, but complained about it the entire time. When he was traded to Washington all he could talk about was how great it was to be in an open system again where he wasn't so restricted.
Basically though, the argument boils down to paying a player over 6 mil a year to score an average of 13 goals a season. Rick Nash and Sergei Fedorov played on the same team for 3 years, yet the argument continues to be made, that Rick Nash still hasn't played with a decent centerman for his entire career. That should tell you how Fedorov played in Columbus.
