I could think of much, much worse contracts in this league than Jay's.

Despite what others think, I'm personally very happy to have Jay on our team and it would take an overpayment to extract him from our blueline.
I think most fans who look beyond his point totals are happy with JBo's play. If JBo was traded who would fill his minutes on the team?

JBo is fourth in the league in TOI/game and has a positive +/- on a team with a negative +/-. JBo is at most 1 mil overpaid, and if the Flames started producing offence more consistently, JBo's numbers would go up making contract fair.

Trading JBo for spare parts and/or salary dumps would be a massive mistake.
