No he may not be a 10 goal scorer, but that isn't his roll. He is a guy who shuts down the opposition, he is a defensive forward. Personally I would be happy if they resigned him as he fills a good 3rd / 4th line roll.
I agree that he's good in a third line and pk role. The problem is that Noel has him in the top 6 and on the pp where at this point in his career he is miscast.
