He was a big reason for the Kings success this year.
Because he is making 6 million a year!

Would you rather have Gaborik at 7.5 mill and still have Quincey or get Ryan Smyth?

I appreciate what Smyth did before the Olympic break, but he is grossly overpaid. And still has two years left. And it very well might prevent us from getting Kovalchuk this summer.
