If he plays with Elias and Jagr, I think he can put up points. But you can't break Patty, Lokti, and Jagr right now.

He had 7 goals and 16 assists (23 points) with a +3 in the second half of the season.  Still a 46-point pace, which is probably just below what I'd ideally want from him - maybe a low 50-point total.  That line was basically a one-man show offensively for the most part with Zajac doing the dirty work for Kovy and Palmeri just taking in oxygen.

 

Even Kovalchuk didn't do as much as you'd think in Lemaire's games.    He was 23-19-42 with Lemaire, in the 50's of games.   I think Zajac had close to 30 points in those games.   Basically their offense was Kovalchuk out front with Elias/Zajac/Rolston behind him.   Rolston actually earned his money for those 4 months or so

Zajac doesn't need to be with elite players to produce. He just needs skilled line mates. Elias and Jagr are just that. Zajac also never did well with Kovalchuk. And Zajac carried Parise as much as it was the other way around. Parise without Zajac was a 65 point player. With Zajac, he was a PPG and better player.

Going to make other points later, but yeah.  That run was built on save percentage, tremendous defense, and luck in one goal games.  They were not terrific offensively that year under Lemaire.  This is the kind of game they have to play this year.
