Reality is that he's been a MUCH better player lately. What I dislike about some people, is that they usually take the last 2-3 games and treat it as if it was the norm. Gionta wasn't as present as he is now. He is doing better. I will still believe he'd be at his place on a 3rd line when all is said and done, meaning with Bourque back.
