For what he does, we could have gotten someone cheaper. He fights, but he can't play the game. Last year Shelley contributed on the forecheck, took the body and even added a few points. Can anyone honestly say that Boogaard has been as good?

I couldn't care less if Boogaard ever scored a goal, but he doesn't contribute defensively, he doesn't throw his body around all that often, probably because he has a hard time catching up to anyone.

What he gives us is not worth 1.6+ mil per year. Granted, that contract isn't going to break the bank, but it's just more proof that Sather still doesn't get it. He's still giving out bad contracts and I fear the day when he has significant cap space again.
