Yeah, he was injured going in (and thus probably shouldn't have gone in the first place), then pulled a groin in the first game. So yes, he was poor in 2010. A "stretch pick" by Yzerman, in the first place probably. No reason to leave him off the team in 2014, though - he's a much better and more experienced player now. Notwithstanding the defensive role he'd play, I'd put him fairly easily in our top 13 forwards now anyway.

And yet you like Perry's and Getzlaf's games on the big ice? And, care to explain exactly why you don't like his game on the big ice?
