I think his production over the course of a full season would fade significantly from his PPG during the playoffs. With his frame and the way he plays, I could see him burning out. The shortened season might help him, but I don't think he'll be nearly as big a contributor as he was during the playoffs.
Put it this way; of the players on that 4th line, Gio would be the one I'd let go first if I had to pick, and I wouldn't think twice about it.
