Depends. I don't see MSL as a guy who mailed in it in but rather someone who needed time to develop. The other drawback was his size. If you're not a productive AND you're small, teams won't take much of a chance on you.

Contrast that to say, Henrik Sedin who also scored very few points in his first two seasons but obviously stuck with the team and developed into the elite player he is today.
