I agree, he averaged 15 minutes a game last season and I'd be shocked if he plays that much this year. Also, if Feds no longer plays on that line, I think the dynamic of that line changes a bit and they won't score as much (which is fine for a 4th line, last year their minutes were more reflective of a 3rd line).

I'm hoping he gets locked up before arbitration because he is in danger of being overpaid if it gets to that point. I'm sure Slats will get something hammered out soon.
