That is somewhat fair to point that out. However, the point others are making is his value can only rise so much without actual NHL games. Certainly he would appear to be healthy, if he does that for even a shortened (we hope) lockout season more teams will be willing to take the risk. So yes to a degree his value is looking better today than this time last year. But it still isn't to what the Oilers have been putting out for basically the last two or three years as what they want for compensation.
