My point was, with Korpikoski getting 11 points last year vs. Fedoktenko, coming off a bad year, getting 30 points last year, do you really think Korpikoski would've really even made the roster?

I definitely agree that Korpikoski is an upgrade over Fedotenko (ignoring veteran presence, which is impossible to quantify) right now. Korpikoski has additional upside to boot.

It's just that even if the Lisin trade wasn't made and we kept Korpikoski, it's very unlikely that we would've ever seen the player he is right now in Phoenix.
