People are down on Setoguchi because they thought he was going to be something that he's not, because he was the only NHL player in the Burns deal.

Setoguchi is so-so 2nd line winger who's points will depend on how he clicks with his linemates. He's a bit of a one-trick pony, a speedy guy who can shoot the puck. To his credit, any scoring line needs at least one guy like that. And his upside is that he can play with two better players.

He's not junk and we shouldn't throw him away, because honestly nobody knows if Zucker is a flash in the pan, if Coyle is ever going to be a top-6 player, if Bouchard has any NHL career left, if Cullen can buck his entire career of being a 40-point "eh" player, or if Larsson is anything more than a role player. For the time being, Setoguchi has a spot as our 2nd line RW.
