Also, he's not as solid defensively as he has been in the past -- like his play against OV in the playoffs, two seasons prior. His point production is also down and he's not getting the shots through, nor quarterbacking the PP as well as we've seen him in the past. Everything considered, I think he is a little overpaid, anymore.
You're over simplifying it. Just because Kimmo plays on the 2nd pairing and Carle on the 1st doesn't mean that they necessarily ARE those kind of players, nor does it mean they are paid as such. Kimmo is our 2nd best D-man, that's just the way it is, and he plays on the 2nd pairing to be the anchor.
