My main point is that lots of players get hot for periods. It is another thing altogether to keep it up over 80 games, year-in-and-year-out.
i would never pull an "i told you so" on a man of your stature.
Hecht fits Ruff's system perfectly. He's a guy that will contribute effectively in any role. When given the opportunity to be a first line player he puts up points in line with that role. When asked to be a guy who matches up against another teams top scorers and shut them down he does it with unrelenting effort. he'll never be an all star, but he's a player a team values and would never part with.
