Give him half the season to get re-acclimated, and you will see the potential for him to be the impact player that Bylsma talked about in his pre-game interview today.
We shall see. For awhile now he's looked like Christensen without a snappy wrist shot, i.e. he can't play. Last year is perfectly reasonable to chalk up to the knee, but I expect a steady improvement starting now. Don't want to hear about being on the fourth line. You don't have to score, but you need to show the coaches something. If you don't show why you should play more why should you play more? (see also: any call up anyone ever whined about not getting a 'real' chance)
