If he was worth a 2nd and O'Sullivan hen we traded from him, I don't see how the season he just had makes him buyout material, injuries or not.

His play before the injury was stellar and he has shown the potential in the past to put up 30+ goals and 70+ points. I don't necessarily expect that, but 25 and 50 is reachable for sure. And he's got winning experience, something we need come the playoffs. I could see buying him out biting us in the ass, big time.
