I agree with JR. Giving Holik $9 mil does not make him a #1 center, and no one in their right mind expects that from Holik. The problem is that since he's been here, he's not even been an adequate #3 center. If Holik was chipping in 20-25 goals and 40-60 points while playing physical and contributing in both ends, there would be no problem. If he was giving an all-out effort but the offense just wasn't coming, then he would still have a point. But he's not doing any of the things that made him a successful NHLer. He's become a more expensive Mike Keane. If Holik wants to say something, he faces the same problem as Messier: why should anyone listen to him when he's not getting the job done on the ice?
