Averages .42 GPG while only getting an average between 15-16 minutes of ice time per game.
On a team with a coach that actually knew how to use scorers, there's no reason he couldn't pot 40 every year.
I'm not questioning his talent. We know he's talented. But at $7m per, he's lousy bang for the buck.
