The planet where you stop trying to combine his one good season (where he fed off beast mode Patches + Cole) with his other seasons, in an effort to make him look good. Last year, with our top wingers, boat load of PP time and every opportunity to succeed, he scored at a 40 point pace. Which, I would be inclined to believe, had it been an 82 game schedule, would've regressed to a 30 point pace.
And in no way am I saying he is a 3rd liner, since I would not have that useless twit on my 3rd line. He'd be terrible in a 3rd line role, even more terrible than his top 6 role.
