Let's not confuse team with the individual. He has had only 3 goals and 4 points in the last three playoff series since his three great years. His teammates haven't been exactly lighting the lamp either the last two postseasons.

His 73 playoff points in 88 career playoff games, his 10 great playoff series out of a 16-series career is still decent. And the skillset he brings to the pp, net presence, physicality in the offensive zone and fourth line are noteworthy. That's all I like about this pick.

As I told jkrx via PM before he made the pick, I suggest him for HIS squad (of Swedes; he told me he already was thinking of him). I personally would let him slide to the AAA, simply because there are others I want more still available.
