He is absolutely better than a 3rd line center, but he gives this team legit 2nd second line and that is going to make him and us alot more dangerous.

Granted, he could find himself in a situation where a change of scenery and a reduced amount of pressure to prodice has allowed him the freedom to play a more relaxed game thereby allowing him to exceed prior career highs, but i don't expect it.

If he can give this Rangers team 40-50 points from the 3rd line position, then that would be spectacular.
Unless Gaborik gets healthy again and I mean completely healthy, he may not get more than 50 pts. His shot and speed are just gone.
