You clearly haven't watched him play since he left Boston. I'd take him over Krejci in a heartbeat, and he's better than Bergeron offensively (though he can't match Bergeron's defensive play).

He is on pace to see his stats decline from last season last I checked.
I never defended Macarthur as the main piece in a trade for Thornton. I did object to your assertion that "he's a flash in the pan". And I addressed the stats in my first post.

Tl;dr - trade is ridiculous, calling Macarthur a "flash in the pan" is ill-advised and un-knowledgeable.
