I think he's a good player, i'm just not gonzo over him like some are.
Neither am I -- I don't think he's anything more than a 55-60 point 2nd liner in a good year. But, on most teams in this league, he is a 2nd liner. Even on a team like Vancouver(better than Raymond), Detroit(better than Bertuzzi/Cleary), Chicago(better than Stalberg/Kopecky), Tampa Bay(better than Gagne/Malone), Pittsburgh(better than Neal and Kunitz), and Philadelphia(better than Hartnell), he would be getting top-6 minutes. He is a 2nd liner through and through.

He didn't play a full season in 09-10? He played 80 games.

As for points, I didn't "just" use that -- but, in this case, it's a pretty relevant point. 23 points in 29 games is pretty damn good for someone who is supposedly "done". He's still the best playmaker on this team, as sad as that may be.

And every player was useless in the playoffs, sans the top-4 defense and Lundqvist.
