He didn't get paid 4.5million to purely play a shutdown role. I'll admit he got a little bit of a pay day, but it had everything to do with ownership problems and making sure the fans had some players they recognized and loved.
Shutdown role???? he's top 5 in points on this team with fewer games played then the leaders on this team. The guy can put up points when put in the right situation.
I get what your saying though. He is definately a shutdown guy. I just felt the need to point out while on top of that he can put the points up.
