He'll work out his **** and get back to a top player in the NHL. I truly believe that he will. Wishful thinking on my part? Maybe. But the effects of trading him are so not worth it.
What about the effects of keeping him? He has been trending downwards for several seasons now. He got his payday. I am having a difficult time seeing him find the motivation to start trending upwards.
