I'd give him a pass for the contract that the Senators gave him, a bad turn of fate for him. However he went ahead and picked up the exact same contract with the Rangers after he was unable to live up to the expectations of his last deal.

He's a nice guy, but I can't feel any sympathy towards players who lock themselves into contracts that they clearly don't deserve. If he ends up in the AHL for the rest of his contract, then it's something he brought upon himself.
This might be the most intellectually dishonest post I've ever seen.

You're blaming a human being for accepting the pay offered to him under the existing system. Let me know if you or anyone else you know ever goes to your boss and asks for a pay cut because you haven't done that great a job.
