But that's not the point.

The point is that, so far into his career as a Carolina Hurricane, he has produced comparable numbers to the best players who are paid a similar salary (not to mention the "lesser" players that you conveniently ignore).

His numbers in Pittsburgh are irrelevant. He is in a totally new situation, with new linemates, responsibilities and expectations.

If you think he's overpaid, that's fine. Bump this thread when the numbers prove you right.
