On a lesser team he's most likely a 2nd line winger and getting even more ice time and scoring chances.
That's not really how it works. I'm not knocking him, but just because he has 9 goals on this team doesn't mean he would have 9 on another. Also just having more goals than a player doesn't make you a better player. By that logic Brian Boyle on the NYR is the 40th best player in the league because he has that many goals. Nodl is not a goal scorer, it just isn't his game. He may score some goals here and there, but playing on a different team wouldn't increase his numbers. In fact they very well could decrease because he wouldn't benefit from playing on a line with Mike Richards and others that he has played with throughout the season.
