But he's overpaid according to the experts on here.

He's probably the most solid player the franchise has had, and all people can say is that he has poor puck-handling skills (hilarous, since that is one of the best aspects of his game). The guy has never complained about the fact that he was an offensive player all of his life, but was turned into a stay-at-home guy exclusively by Lemaire. Instead, he thanks Lemaire for making him a better defensive hockey player, which gets scoffed at on here.

No loyalty whatsoever.

Good to know - thanks guys.
Hey as long as you feel the same way about Jordan Leopold, Keith Ballard, Paul Martin, Thomas Vanek, Phil Kessel and Blake Wheeler we're cool.

Also wondering why there's no love for Boogaard and Harding?
