Sykora is done as a quality NHL forward. His goal total last year was completely misleading. He relied overwhelmingly on Elias and Zubrus to do all the dirty work by digging for pucks, breaking into the offensive zone, creating space, and set up him on goals that quite honestly, most hockey players could finish.

His wheels are gone and that's been the case for a few years now anyway as well. He really does not add anything substantial to the depth of your lines or quality of the team as he can't play the PK, can get outplayed in 5-5 play and gets gassed on long shifts or late in games (and he pretty much collapsed towards the end of the year with the Devils and got benched in the playoffs). If you don't have an in-house alternative to bringing him in to add to your team, you are probably in some trouble.
