Not really he almost hit 40 goals in the SCF year and might have got there if he played the whole season. And the first half of 10-11 was bad for everyone but he started scoring at a pretty rapid pace when Lemaire came in. I don't think they tried to turn him into a grinder--they just wanted him to get better defensively which he did.
