You guys can keep lauding this guy all you want for now, but when he gets dealt or taken off the Giroux and Jagr line, he'll go back to being the schlub he's been for most of his career.

He's been a ~50 point forward since 2003. There is more to hockey than skating and making pretty plays. He plays defense pretty well, hits, fights, sticks up for his teammates, works hard along the boards, goes to the net, and scores 25ish goals a year. There's a reason he has been apart of 3 of our best lines the past few seasons.
