One upside is he can play left wing.
He was making around $2.85 last year as I don't see how it's huge overpayment. As far as I know B's wanted to sign him but no longer than for 2 years. He does have injury problem and we don't really know about his health and abilities after the last concussion. (For example after easier concussion during 2002-2003 Rolston's game went downhill and he worries too much about being hit)
