Has Anyone Played Well After A Holdout?

Comrades,
Even if the Oil sign Comrie, what are the odds he'll be worth the money and place in the line-up? I suspect he'll be out of shape, in a snit, and whoever winds up with less ice time will be less happy as well. Is there any evidence that suggests that people who sit out actually play reasonably well?

I thought of Bertuzzi's 10 game suspension a couple years back, but even then he practiced with the team, and took a while to really take off.

Looking for some silver linings,
Boho

Kariya was amazing that one year he held out for awhile, and then got a concussion from Mathieu Schneider.

He could also come out of the gate really fired up and with something to prove. It could go either way, and he was in excellent shape before the season, looking like the best Oiler on the ice at the UofA skates. Here's hoping this thing has a last shot left.

Well, I know I'd welcome him back if he signs - because booing and not wanting him is counter-productive.

Khabiboulin was pretty good after his long stay away from the game.
