Just gonna play devil's advocate here...
10-11: 49th with 42 points in 68 games
09-10: 51st with 41 points in 68 games
08-09: 59th with 41 points in 76 games
07-08: 39th with 49 points in 79 games
Now, which season are you talking about with the injury? Because he played 68 games twice and 3 years his point totals have been within one point. So really, since the 08-09 season, he's been a fringe 2nd liner points wise. Basically, a below average 2nd liner or above average 3rd liner(assuming theres 30 #1 centers, 30 #2 centers, etc).
Now, this year, he's tied for 30th in scoring among centers, so that would put him into the category of an above average #2 center or below average #1 center(all based off of points only). But then again, 15 of those points came in 5 consecutive games. Take those 5 games away, and he's 71st among centers in scoring.
