His value at the moment is much higher than it was last season. If he's healthy and still here after deadline day then I don't now what to say.

Last season: 69gp. 10-26-36 0.522ppg
This season: 22gp. 8-5-13 0.591ppg

It might not look like a huge increase but the team hasn't been scoring a ton and he's back to being a threat to dance through opposing defenses and score again. Overall he is a MUCH better player than he was last season coming off of shoulder surgery, his value should be considerably higher now than it was last February.
