He's also making just over $4 million in salary, this is important for AEG and the salary budget.
I'm sure AEG loves him for that 2.25 million, but that in no way helps the team. And he was a solid 2nd line winger a few games this season. He ruins our breakout because he can't catch passes, he's too slow getting back on D (keep in mind that almost all of San Jose's important goals were because our forwards didn't get back fast enough so the seam was open for one of their Ds/ late forwards). It's not like he's going to be faster this season. Sure he'll get a few garbage goals but, at the cost of many more against.
