And while I would agree his play has fallen off a bit offensively, he's still about a 50 point player each of the last two seasons. Now tell me something, do you see anybody else like that on the roster outside the top 4? Because I don't even see any 30 point guys, much less 50.
At even strength, playing in the top 6, he's been a 26pt and 33pt guy. He generates almost nothing, and his soft style doesnt fit well with a forecheck system under Muller. Your argument is he is a top 6 shoo-in as if its a given, but when if the subject is "lines" the given means at even strength playing the system. Jussi is anything but, and nothing he's done the last 2 season says otherwise. Still waiting for you to show something that does.
