I do not believe we can win in the playoffs where only two lines can reasonably score on any given shift. So, this is purely about him slotting down to the 4th line where he belongs.
I agree that he is not amazing offensively, but his line normally controls the puck down low and works hard every shift. They are difficult to play against and while that may not show up on the scoresheet, over a 7 game series, it is a factor for sure.
