He has never shown an ability to carry that Ducks team the way that Getzlaf, Perry, and even Teemu have for stretches, and he is going to be dealt for a boatload, as some GM is going to think he's an 80-100 point centerpiece guy.

I love him as a complimentary winger (i.e. Jeff Carter), but I would hate to see Poile overpay for him. I just don't think he's capable of being THE guy offensively. A few highlight goals here and there, and consistent numbers, but not a focal point.
Yeah kinda like Gaborik. He scores but other than that you pretty much wonder if he's playing. Nice guy to have, but not a guy I'd build a team around or trade a ton for.
