His salary might be too high for what he brings overall to the team, but there are very few players I'd rather have on this team than Leggy. He basically wrote the book on what it is to be a Nashville Predator personality.
Adding to this, he is also the all-time leading scorer in franchise history. One of 3 players with 100 goals, the only one with 150. One of 3 players with 200 assists, the only one with 250. One of 3 players with 300 points, the only one with 400.
Has also appeared in more games than any other player in franchise history, take his defensive play into account with his offensive contributions and it's easy to see how he has stuck around for so long. He should still be able to finish his career with 700-800 points, and if he did he would certainly not be the first player to have his jersey retired with 700 points.
But by all means, if the masses want to keep complaining about the guy, then go for it. I'll continue to enjoy watching you folks look stupid.
