He scored 7 goals....................different role or not you aren't producing the way you should. When Primeau was elected to the all-star game in 2004 it has been talked about as one of the worst seasons a player ever got elected to the game, for what it's worth.

Primeau was a good player. But he was the same more or less where he went. On a stacked team with less playing time in Detroit he was the same type of player as when he was in Carolina, and then in Philly from 2000 onwards. I remember the idea that when he went to Philly in 2000 he and Lindros would steamroll the opposition. That's the thing with Primeau, he just never hit a level that seemed to go with his expectations.
