He has moments every now and then, but he's clearly not the player he used to be. Less speed than before, more of a perimeter player, much less effective on the PP, worse shot (hardness and accuracy). He's not necessarily below average in any of those skills yet, but he's obviously declining. His passing is the part of his offensive game that has had the least dropoff, so his new linemates would ideally be able to capitalize on that.

He could be a nice second line winger worth 3 to 4 million in the right situation, but nobody should be counting on him to be a top line talent for their team anymore.
