He's been real real good though. He did more than enough to earn about 8 assists so far but the other team or goalie made spectacular saves.
What I gathered from reports of his play in Hartford, he was on of (if not the) best players on the team initially, it just didn't result in any points (much like his first games as a Ranger). His play might have slumped after that for a while before he exploded, but I think the points will come in bunches when the rest of the team figures him out. He doesn't seem to think the game the same way as regular players and he is only supposed to surprise the opposition, not his teammates...
