I'm OK with him 4th lining it for a while if it benefits the team, but in the long run he just CAN'T stay there and make any sort of financial sense.
I think that Izzy's too good for the 4th line and I'm hoping that it shows through pretty soon.
He has already made some very nice offensive plays and he's just getting healthy now, having a guy with his size on the top two lines would be a huge asset if he can make it work.
$2M for a 20-25 goal scorer on the second line is fair in this market.
