And he scored a resounding... wait for it... 37 points last year! That's 17 goals scored! Yes... That must have meant all the difference compared to a Bertuzzi or a Samuelsson... Oh wait... That's no difference at all. Perhaps they had an awful season the previous year, held a fire sale, and were left with Greening as one of their only options.
Before Anderson got hurt they were neck and neck with Boston for division lead. They then traded for Ben Bishop who went ~.500 over 10 games or so, and their season was fairly stagnant from that point forward, much like ours was after all of our injuries late in the season.

Would you rather not have Nyquist scoring ~30-40 points playing on lines 1 through 3 and getting some PP time (1st or 2nd unit, doesn't matter which) than have some plug do it for 2 or 3x the price, all the while taking a spot from Nyquist to do the same thing and gain confidence?
