And for 700K, his attitude was manageable (by waiving, etc.). Though, I'm always suspicious of hearsay stuff like that.
I dont think he would have signed here for 700k. I've just never been keen on him as a good "defensive" player, and find people just overate his defense due to his faceoff %. For 700k I would never have said no to him, but he almost signed in Atlanta for 2 mil a year, and im sure he took the 700k discount for a good oppertunity in SJ for minutes and winnings

He is SJ's 6th forward in ice time.
