That doesn't give a lot of goals. But I think he has gotten better and got confidence.
If you look at his totals after leaving NHL:
Lugano 48GP - 22+41 for 63 points + 8GP : 7+1 in the playoffs
Salavat Yulaev 56GP - 24+33 for 57 points + 10GP : 5+5 in the playoffs
Olympics: 4GP : 0+5 for 5 points.
I think he can be a solid 2nd/3rd liner for you. He and MZA+Vikingstad just ripped apart Switzerland and Slovakia in the Olympics. Streit and Chara. To bad we didn't have the D or goaltending to get through. Even though Grotnes actually did good over several games for a change.
He battles hard, and I remember he had a beast penalty kill vs. Canada in the Olympics.
He actually played on a line with Richards.
