Walker had 2 seasons with 25 goals. If SK has even one season with those numbers, I'd say considering what we paid for him, thats a tremendous "success"
In the context of expansion, Walker was a success.
But for a team that is a threat in the playoffs, Walker wouldn't have gotten close to the ice-time he got here.
That's the point about SK. He's done well with this chance, but so did the afore mentioned players. Those players were decent, but not the kind of people you build playoff winning teams with, at-least on a scoringline. \
Do I hope we have the next Patrick Sharp? (twenner guy who was traded for very little)? Sure. But, too early to tell.
