I know very little about him, other than that he was traded, and then had a great season. His numbers dropped the following season (so did games played, and slight drop in icetime).

He might not be a clear upgrade over anyone... but who knows... sometimes players just need a chance to succeed. See Matt Molson. And his RHS is something that we really really need.

But at some point Shero will need to address our forward situation, and as much as we'd all like him to land a great player to play with Crosby and Malkin, they might not be available... so I can live with him finding acceptable players on the cheap who might work until he can land that star.
