While he was infinitely better when he was younger, he was still nothing more than a 2nd liner.
He WAS a clutch player Chimp. You can't take the GW's away and you can't discount them because Joe Sakic was on the ice at the time they were scored. I watched those games. All of them. I know and understand the context under which they were won. These were very impressive performances from a young player that wasn't a superstar in the league. They were the kind of performances that fans of this team would soil themselves over if anyone on this roster had been able to come up with one over the past decade.
