I'd say he was easily a top ten centre from '06-'09. After that, he had a couple of productive seasons points-wise in '10 and '11, but to me he didn't really seem to be playing to his capabilities all the time. IIRC, he started off poorly in both 2009 and 2010 and then again in 2011 (as did his team). I remember having the impression that he would often have very lackluster stats early on in seasons and then would warm up and eventually get hot down the stretch. He had a strong 2013 season but fell off considerably after that. He did have a nice 2017 season. I know his team wasn't that greatest after 2009, but could he have done more to make the Canes more than a perennial non-playoff team that would turn it on late in the season?
