All I am saying is that isn't not like his 40 goal season was his only glimpse of high end production, and that he did put up his highest point totals the year before playing 2nd line and 2nd PP. So he is worth that much, his 10/11 year wasn't a career season that he doesn't have the ability to match.
1. Fair enough, the Canucks wouldn't be insane to demand that, however I can't see any teams offering that. I think we can conclude he's worth about the same as Richards.

2. True, I think he does have high end offensive talent, however outside of that one season, he hasn't even broken the 30 goal mark. As well, he's played on an offensive juggernaut the past few seasons. But we seem to have reached an agreement as to his value, so let's end this.
