He's much better in his own end than he gets credit for, he's a one-man breakout, and he's great on the PP. I don't think he's much of a risk anymore, unless you're holding on to the things that happened when he was hurting.
Agree to disagree on the not being a risk anymore. He missed 81 games in the previous two seasons, so there always remains a red flag unless he proves he can be durable this year. 10 or 11 games isn't a good sample size. I have the same thing with Perron in St. Louis. Would you trade a big chunk of future to vancouver for Ryan Kessler (Vancouver won't trade him, but an example) after he played five or six healthy games after having surgery in the off season like three years in a row and is sidelined for the start of the season?
