He does everything people would want to see from him to see that he is actually "realizing his potential." He just needs to do it night in night out now. And seriously, if you took Shane O'Brien off his left side and put Del Zotto, Giradi, McDonagh, or Staal beside him, I'm sure it would be a little easier for him to find some consistency having another good player instead of someone who has played for 5 teams already and believes he has the capabilities of an Erik Karlsson.

Just wait for the lockout to end. A lot of this EJ bust talk is going to go away.
I would expect a 5 year vet to show consistency. I agree that he is better than MDZ though for the people having that debate.
