The two seasons after that and before he came to Montreal:

07-08 8 points, -10
08-09 16 points, -18.
Although it might have sounded that way because of poor wording, I didn't imply a cause to effect between his stats and the quality of his play. Merely commenting on how I felt his stats now don't represent the player he is (I'll gladly eat crow if he magically turns into a 25 goal scorer though) or how he made his mark in the NHL. I remember a player with more aggression in his game during the Anaheim days and that was setting him appart from all the other generic looking dime a dozen defensive players. The putrid comment refers to last year's perceived effort level and overall utility to the team. Subjective opinion.
