Because Setoguchi had 1 good rookie year playing with Thorton, and then 3 "eh" years. San Jose fans put him in every trade proposal.

It's completely possible Setoguchi is Fletcher's forward version of Barker. I wasn't impressed with him in San Jose, and its been the same here. He just doesn't have good vision, terrible at passing, and he's weak on the puck.

He's got a nose for the net, but that's about it. Not saying we trade him for scraps, but I've pencil him as the 2nd or 3rd line RW, and that's where he'll stay.
