He is a great insurance policy if Ribeiro doesn't work out with Samsonov and Kovalev as well.
I think he'll net us 20-25 goals this year and everyone will be glad that Bob did the right thing and held onto him. If he can carry the momentum he had at the end of the season he'll be in great shape and should have a better offensive year for us.
Then you must not have seen him play in the playoffs when Koivu was out. When he was called upon to be on the top 2 lines, he was absolutely ineffective.
