I think he used to rack up 40-50 points on the 3rd line, granted he was with offensive grinders. It shouldn't be a problem for him to reach at least 30 this year. He probably already knows Nikolishin so they can re-join on a PK unit. Oh, and he's also a great PKer, probably the best shot blocker on our club since Podien.
I like Konowalchuk. So for this year only it is an upgrade in my mind. And it is better to deal Battaglia if they are not going to give him a chance instead of misuse him.

What I am surprised about is that they gave away Johansson. The Avs doesn't seem to have all that many good forward prospects. Vrbata/Nedorost/Johansson shipped out in the last 6 months. Perhaps they are really high on McCormick and Svatos for the future.
