Pad his stats? Come on guys, really. Do you honestly think that the GM's of the league have no idea that someone playing on the first line is going to score more points than someone on the 3rd or 4th? Geeze, these guys are not complete and utter morons.

He chose to play on that team for one simple reason only - he wants to PLAY. He didn't want to get into the same situation he had in Montreal, he wanted to play and show what he can do. Hell, maybe he'd even have FUN getting to play on the top 2 lines and maybe getting some scoring chances.

Padding his totals have nothing to do with it. GM's are smarter than that, and believe it or not - you still have to have talent to score points even on the first line!
