I think he looks much better the last 3 games. If he doesn't hit the post vs Stl, and the goal goes in, that could have been the turning point in the game. I think he's going to be fine now, the goals will come, his shifts look much better.

Trading him just doesn't make sense to me either. I think the return would be low, and its not like we have to free up salary due to the cap. Worse case scenario, RJ is a solid 3rd liner that can be used in front of the net on the PP. Best case, he's a top 6 forward that will get you 20+ goals a season. Either way I think in the long run we're a better team with him than without.
