they probably wanted to trade abdelkader, since he's f*cking useless and they have too many forwards when healthy.
so they throw him with datsyuk for a bunch of games to try to raise his value.
unfortunately, he's not even good enough to get a point or two after playing a month with one of the top 5 forwards in the game.
i think we need an "abdelkader apprectiation thread" shortly.
Who would want Abdelkader? I wouldn't trade anything for him if I was a GM. Players like that are widely available.
1 point in 22 games? Nobody wants that.
