If I'm remembering correctly, Fehr was in the top 10 in points/60 in the entire league one year. To me, that isn't an issue of getting the job done. It speaks more to injury and lack of ice time. Perhaps there was a problem with his effort during practices and such, but it never seemed to be a consistent problem during games. While Flash could do no wrong, Fehr could do no right it seemed.

I can't speak to his time in Winnipeg since I never saw him play. It's possible that his shoulder issues really hampered him.

If he is healthy, I would definitely give him a tryout.
