I'm curious why people still think 52 is anything special..... When was the last time he played at an all-star level for any length of time?

Whether he is a problem or not is almost moot IMO, he is at best an average player.....until he proves otherwise.

People can debate whether he is worth a damn in his own zone, I think down low he stinks and loses one-on-one battle way too much for a guy who gets $$ and ice time. That could be offset if he was the player he used to be with the puck but seriously, when was the last time we saw that regularly.

Ad I'm not even bringing up the player he has never been, a playoff factor.

I ask this because I see his name brought up in trade discussions where he is the main piece bringing back a fairly significant piece......52 is not a special player anymore. Maybe that returns but I see no indicators of that
