I think he is the type of player that elevates the play of those around him and with the talent we have on wings he could out up big points.

If he went to Calgary I see him in tht 50-60 range. With us I think he would be that 70-80 point guy. His best asset is his IQ....with the talent we have he should be able to maximize his and his wingers play (and points).

He has that Getzlaf element. What I'm trying to say in a roundabout way is that some players need the puck to be effective. Say Duchene. Dutch could come to us and I don't see his points going up much (if at all). Monahan is opposite where he plays to other strengths. Like Getzlaf
