You realize no fourth liner provides offense at a high level. He can provide more offense than most other fourth liners, while being valuable in many other aspects of the game, which is very important. He's never going to be a top 6 player and I don't expect him to be. He scored 20 goals 2 seasons ago and everyone got high high hopes. That's not who he is, he's a very valuable bottom 6 player who is good in the defensive aspects of the game and will chip in 15-30 points a season.
