Show some loyalty. We all want players to do it, but as fans, take the guy with the most games played as a Wild player and throw him out, huh?

What a superfan you are.
In fairness, this is a lot nicer than the other "appreciation" thread.

He's not really overpaid (in terms of when the deal was made); the problem is the length. No one likes to see a second-pairing guy with a six-year deal that takes out a few years of free agency.
