Second, San Jose needing to be cap compliant and traded Errorhof for two duds to get cap space. (Not much of a steal, when you consider he only had him for 2 seasons) IMO... Sundin staying year 2 fully committed would have pushed the Canucks over the top. His last final full season, he was still PPG. Even if he takes the secondary role and put up only 60pts... that's damn good for a 2nd line centre (chances are he would be at least PPG or more playing alongside Demitra/Kesler/whoever against 2nd pairing). Ehrhoff's presence coincided with the Sedin's back-to-back Art Ross trophy. Not saying he was the reason for it, but when you correlate the amount of points generated with each other, it's pretty much a fact that they all help contribute to each other's success. The Sedins haven't nearly reached that level of production since Ehrhoff left town. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
