At the time they dealt him, I don't think anyone here would have thought he was a legit top-6 C. 2 years later, he's a top-6 C with pretty decent possession numbers IIRC (plus some decent ES scoring) on a Cup champion.
I do think that has a lot to do with his wingers (apparently Schwartz is a fancy stats darling and Tarasenko is Tarasenko), but just goes to show that context matters so much for these guys I suppose.
If you’re only effective based on the other players on your line, are you really worth 8 years?
On definitely not, agree it's a bad deal. It's just funny how these things work out. Still think that was a good trade for the Flyers (and helps that both of their picks out of it are tracking really well so far).
