Why are you ignoring his good performance and just pointing out that he's going to be 35 this year. Byers is 195 pounds. He does not fill the same role as Shelley. Sigh.
Shelley did do a nice job last year. But at the same time I dont think he will be as effective next year because someone as talented as Anisimov will not be the 4th line center. Byers is a better player obviously he is not the fighter Shelley is. But I rather go with the better player who plays with a lot of grit and toughness.
