Sure, he's not going to give you the 51 points he had on the PP right out of the lockout, but he'll improve the PP on most teams with his presence.
He may have decent numbers next year if he is playing on the PP with stud players. He creates very little and doesn't shoot. He is Kimmo on the PP with less creativity, we certainly do not need that. He is clearly not good enough to excel in playoff hockey as we are all seeing, so why would we want him? He is the last player in the league I would want in Orange and Black. We need more Briere/Giroux/Pronger types who pick up their play in the playoffs, not Kaberle who is less effective.
