Indeed. Surpassed 50 points twice, hit 30 goals once. Nothing to speak of defensively, presumably average physically. Again, why pick him if you aren't going to use him on the PP? I'd like to see monster_bertuzzi's explanation for that. If he's not on the PP, Tomas Holstrom is an MLD player at best.

If it can be proven that Detroit's PP was better (both statistically and by the "you can just see it" standard), I'll buy him as a 4th liner, but even then, he needs to be on PP.

In how many games?
