I'm sure Trotz went through the thoughts that if Legwand would wake up and be somewhat the player he was supposed to be. Then after a period of time he just played Legwand to his strength which is defensive. If Legwand was paid 3.5ml instead of 4.5ml then I wouldn't be that alarmed. Which would free up some more money to add to the offensive. You made the statement "I've never expected Legwand to put up monster offensive numbers". But you keep referring to the year that he scored 27 goals.
If you don't pay a player the top salary on the team for monster offensive numbers then what do you pay him for. You don't pay top salary for defensive. Those go to defenseman.
Explain Ryan Kessler and his soon to be $5 million salary.
