I'm in agreement with you that he's effective in his zone. But so are a number of sub 40 pts dmen in this league. I just don't see the over valuation most Habs fan seem to think he has.

Everybody agreed that Wideman got overpaid in Calgary. I see the same type of thing here. Granted PK is younger but I don't see his ceiling being much higher than that. Add the lockerroom issues that everyone seem to ignore, and I have to side with Bergevin on the rumoured contract offer.
