He's more than a little long in the tooth, but still skilled. If he plays in about 38 games and has his attitude corrected, I'd guess somewhere between 15 to 20 points or so, maybe more if he brings his 'A-game' and doesn't pout.
I can't say speak for his honesty or his attitude, though - those of us who've been Islanders fans long enough have seen too many people come here and stink it up - Karpovtsev, Rolston, and Muller come to mind. Taking the legality of the trade to an arbitrator and voicing a desire to simply not return to the NHL both don't really give us too much ground to believe he'll pitch much effort, so whether we'll get a usable sliver of the game he brought during his good years in on the west coast or Karpovtsev 2.0 remains to be seen.
