There's a reason Detroit wouldn't pony up more than a 2d plus some middling prospects and that the trade market was basically non-existent outside of two teams who might've taken on his full bloated salary.

The point is, let's see how he handles a ferocious playoff forecheck. My perspective as a Blues fan who's seen an endless parade of first and second round exits is I only care about what gets them past the obstacles that exist in the playoffs.
Do you think part of the reason his play was inconsistent was due to the team he was on? Not trying to take a shot at the Flames, but there's a reason why they haven't been to the playoffs for a few seasons.
