There are some nights when Christensen lights it up and there are other nights when he's pretty much invisible. He is almost like Zherdev lite--not quite as talented but his negatives aren't quite as bad as Zherdev's either. As an example he is less apt to make a boneheaded play in the defensive end. There is also the matter of compensation. I prefer the inconsistent Christensen at $875 K to the even more heartless primadonnaesque Zherdev at the $3 mil or whatever we paid him a couple years ago. Christensen is decent to good value for his contract. He's never going to get super rich and we can walk away from him as soon as a better option comes along. What you might call a utility man.
