I think his salary was justified when he decided to sign with the worst team in the League... paving the way. IMO they had to overpay and the top three UFA centers that season were in high demand... I think it's pretty clear no that he was the best of those signings over the long haul.
Except for a couple seasons back IMO he has proved his worth in the Regular Season and even more so in the Postseason.
When he won me over was in his first Flyers season IIRC when he ended up playing with such a bad shoulder that when he scored he was unable to do his signature fist pump.
What is he worth to us? I believe he is worth his team high $6.5M for the goals and when he scores those goals... for his presence in the Playoffs when he gives the Flyers a chance to win each series... and for his quiet leadership, especially with the team changing and losing Richie and Carts. I think he will complete his contract here.
