As for the bolded I assume you mean this year and not career, which has been what 9 games which he has played something like 3. Perhaps he's getting his conditioning back, eating a few more pancakes, who knows.
The same concerns about his conditioning and his compete level have been around for his entire career. It's not as if he's suddenly taken a nose dive. He was terrible all year for the Kings until the playoffs rolled around. I don't think many teams want to bring in a guy who may or may not turn it on when it matters at the expense of anything more than maybe a 3rd and a C level prospect.
