Imagine if you up his minutes, will he score more or be less effective because of the poundings he takes?
Furthermore, you've gotta factor in that the large percentage of his time in Montreal was with bottom six forwards as his linemates. Stats cannot be used as a straight tool to assess a player without getting actual viewings to figure out why the stats read the way they do...
