Not a bad thing, but not special. Lisin has the qualities, and scoring touch this team desperately needs...
I'm pretty sure Korpikoski will hit 25 if played enough. He's got the abilities with the puck and the speed. A ton of his shots with us last year rang off the post. 1-2 inches the other way and he scored atleast 5 more goals.

It's debatable, but the only way I see him never hitting 15 is if he destroys his career at his own hands.
