If he dries up and comes back to Earth, then ok. But I don't see why he wouldn't be able to maintain a good scoring pace throughout the year even if it's not PPG.

I might agree if he hadn't been our best defenseman by a mile in the only playoff series he's played in for the Sharks. I think he absolutely could be a #1, especially if paired with Pickles in the long term.
