Hmm, okay, then lets take a gander at his Ranger career, shall we?

236 GP, 112 G, 109 A, 221 P, +39

.936 PPG, .474 GPG.

Overpaid, you were saying?
Again, is scoring a goal in OT the same thing as scoring the fourth goal to make it 4-0only to see the other team score 3 to make that 4th goal a game winner? Why not address the question? Why not answer the fact that he is intermittently great and intermittently disappears instead of bringing up stats? His opposite is Callahan. He brings it every shift. That is the primary reason he is the fan's favorite skater.

I have never disputed he is an excellent offensive player. My contention is that if you appear to not be bringing it all the time, as even his supporters admit here, and you are prone to injury, you are not worth having at 7.5 million a year.

To me, no. To you, yes. We disagree.
