He's talking about his mad skillz, not actual production.

I like a lot of the things he is doing, but I really haven't seen anything from him offensively.  He had that great scoring chance against the Islanders when he drove to the net, but I honestly couldn't say that he is even average when he has the puck on his stick.  Way too early to write him off.  I still think he's a good year or so away from being capable of regular NHL action.

He has still shown more offense then stajan ever did.

Funny but no.

Funny and right.  That is why stajan is on calgary's 4th line.

Care to elaborate on how Ashton's 0 points in 10 NHL games is showing 'more offense than Stajan ever did' when Stajan has 4 seasons of 15+ goals and seasons of 40 and 50+ points?

Just do the math.... wait a minute....

I like Ashton in that he's big and physical.  I think he's fairly well suited to playing a cycle game and knocking guys around in the corners.  His defence seems fairly solid as well which is a nice starting point.
