Uh... Last year, even with a down year, he had more points than all but 4 of our forwards? He has consistently been a 20 goal per season play-making winger throughout his career? Plays left wing (a need of ours). Brings toughness and good skill whether he's slotted in the top 6 or bottom 6. Big improvement in depth. Not a bad cap hit for what he provides. Its a pretty big list. The fuss about him is pretty easily understandable.
He's having a bad season after having injury problems, and there is some concern that he'll be on the wrong side of 30 soon. But that said, as most people who have been fussing about him have acknowledged, he's not worth it if the price is too high (either as a rental, or if he asks for too much of a bump to his salary).
