EDIT: he just broke out for a full season in 10-11 with the pens. Guy has potential enough said.
It's pretty easy to say he doesn't have top-6 upside. He hasn't shown it anywhere, ever, and he's 28 years old now. How is 27 points at 26 years old breaking out, in a top-6 potential sense? He's a responsible 3rd line guy with good enough offensive abilities to contribute a bit offensively in that role (including a decent shot IIRC), but there really is nothing there that stands out as a possible top-6 center on a good team. He isn't a 2nd line center for the Jackets, either.

It's just a weird proposal. In some threads, you have the most outrageous asking prices, and here you come up with that. I really don't get it.
