Given that RJ is likely to be able to contribute to the team as a whole even if his skills start to deteriorate, I don't think it's as much of an issue as you suggest. Unless, of course, none of that actually counts and we were absolutely right to dump guys like Peca and Malhotra because there was more talent elsewhere.

I seem to recall Shelley's last career year being six years ago, when he scored 10 points.

RJ's was last year, for 57 points.

Thanks, Howson, for cleaning up MacLean's toxic waste. Welcome, Kekalainen; let's get good things built!
