he was a 90 point player...his last year in ottawa, he had almost 90 points. but after that, his numbers have been declining the last 3 years with the islanders. point total is 75, 65 and 34 (ok, only 47 games played). his plus/minus in the island has never gone above 0...he was put in the fourth line for some reason...imagine that,
$7.5 mil a year and you're on the fourth line
i'm just getting a negative vibe from the guy. maybe he's soft and wants to protect himself from injuries (and keep cashing that paycheck) and still have his looks for his model wife? i don't know but all the vibe i get is that its not going to be a good fit with andy murray...no motivation?
edit: changed yashin salary because of the rollback...
Due to budget cuts, the light at the end of the tunnel will be turned off
