He's not Patty Kane, but he's a better ALL-AROUND goal scorer than everyone but Kane, and arguably Kessel. (Kessel and Ryan are just different players to me.)
It's a big risk, and the "questions" are overblown. This reeks of something personal. It's not like he was so bad in 2010 that his commitment and drive left something to be desired. The part of his game being questioned is not a part of the game a player just drops out of nowhere. He's the same player he was in 2010, and while they're trying to sell you this idea of having much harder roster choices this time around, that's really only true of the defense.
