I just think the money can be spent better elsewhere.

No sense adding a 36 year old player on the decline. We have a good core of young veterans on the team and have some decent prospects.

I don't think a PP point shot is worth 5M a year, especially when Subban is right around the corner. Plus Weber is another option, heck even Carle was progressing nicely before his injury this season.

It's not an albatross of a contract, but I do believe there options out there we should look into before Rolston.
