Right, he is like a Callahan in terms of his skill set, except Callahan plays on the third line and Avery plays on the 1st or 2nd. That's why I don't want him. I don't want to pay a 3rd liner $4 million to play on a 1st or 2nd line that he doesn't belong on.
My max for him is $3 million and that's even pushing it for a player who has never scored more than 15 goals in a season. To me he's worth about 2.2.
He's not an exceptional PKer, isn't a PP specialist, isn't a goal scorer or a playmaker, he's an agitator who can put up 15, possibly 20 goals in a great season playing top two line minutes. That is in no way worth $4 million.
