but is he an elite sniper anymore? for most of this season he looked like a pk specialist. i know injuries played a factor and i think with a full offseason's worth of rest he'll return to form to an extent, but still, i'm worried about his long-term future.

i think if his back heals up for good and the team around him doesn't suck as bad as they did this year, he can put up 30-40-70 numbers again, but i think his days of being an 80+ point player are over. he's worth his cap hit, but not his actual dollars amount anymore, imo, and i think that will prevent anyone for trading for him even if the devils were willing to trade him.
