Look at Samuelsson, whenever he had a slump (and he had godawful stretches) people would shrug it off cause magically he was going to be an allstar in the playoffs. Uh, nope. He was a liability for a few games and then missed the rest.
Lapierre better improve. He has decent hands. He should be entering the prime of his career, with a group of guys he can learn a lot from. This multi year contract, coming off a year where he was traded twice, should not be a sign that he can coast til the playoffs. We don't want players that coast. That's what made this past season's team awesome.
Samuelsson was hurt most of the season. That's like saying Malhotra didn't earn his money because he nearly lost an eye...
