The fact that Slats refused to qualify him to avoid arbitration was one thing, attempting to get him to sign cheaper and longer would rub anyone the wrong way.
The guy was headed to the AHL when we plucked him off the waiver wire (the 2nd time he had been waived last year). He's been on 4 teams in the last 3 years. The guy should just be happy to have a job at this point.

If he was smart, he could have parlayed this 2 year deal into an actual career, and then gotten a decent payday when he turns UFA. Instead he'll sign with some team, play 3rd line minutes and not produce, and probably get waived again.
