The guy is a good second line winger. Puts up something around 25/25 for 3.25, that's good value. The best thing about him is he brings some dynamic qualities to the forward corps. He has good speed, a powerful stride, under rated passing abilities and lays out the body the best out of our forwards. He also brings some size to the table, while most of our other forwards don't.

He should shoot more, play at a higher level more often, and improve his puck tracking abilities. He can be frustrating at times, but which player isn't?

I am for one, very happy with him on the team in his role.
I agree that the problem is the delusion other people have about his potential.

We just need to face it, this is the type of player he is, 20-25 goals, 50 points, and that's exactly what $3.25 million gets you.
