Actually has been boarderline outstanding during the second half the season. The lockout pushed him down the lines and his slump continued. His linemates have been awful for most the season and it sounds like Jokerit has trouble offensively and with health. But he has turned it back on, he is more a playmaker than the goal scorer everyone loves even with that big shot. I think the massive weight gain he had going into last year really hurt his game. He has dropped the pounds to play smaller and looks more comfortable. His bad skating is a little better the couple times I have seen him. It remains to be seen what he will be on this side of the pond, but he is getting some of his mojo back.
