Does Olli Maatta have a long term future in Pittsburgh? Also can he return to how he played as a rookie?

I think he does have a long-term future in Pittsburgh.
However, I’m not convinced he’ll ever return to the player we seen in his rookie year.
It’s not easy to overcome cancer and major shoulder surgeries at such a young age.
I don’t see him as the core piece I once did.
If the Penguins can market him as a young two-time Stanley Cup champion, and get more in return than he’s worth, I would be sad to see him go.
But it might be worth it.
