Do you really think there is a chance that he won't score 20 goals?

I think he has an outside shot at 30 if he can keep stable linemates and minutes.

I'm not his biggest fan, he certainly has his flaws, but he absolutely can contribute to this team. We've been very lucky with injuries but it's going to be nice to have an offensive weapon to bump up in the depth chart if a key player goes down for any length of time.

Defensively, he has not been the void in the line up that some people say. However, it's certainly true that he's been nothing special and has made some inexcusably poor decisions.

Hopefully he gets his **** together. I had predicted him to have a stellar year since 30 goals would have allowed him to cash in big time in the offseason. I also thought that Giroux would be able to feed him a ton of pucks and vice-versa but that, obviously, has not happened.

But, for 2M, he was absolutely worth the gamble and Homer did the right thing in signing him.
