You can add two seasons of defensive work if you like, the "top-10 selke finishes' being an overvalued stat around here. His career is full of potential but underwhelming in terms of performances, impact and historical significance.

Stick the relative greenhorn in terms of all-time play on the fourth line to provide some playmaking and 2nd unit special teams play.
He's played 7 full seasons - 6 of them as a relevant player to the NHL - is that really a "greenhorn?"
