I think the "hate" comes from how he's paid. Anyone who knows hockey has seen him regress over the last couple years. He will continue to regress. Yet instead of paying him like a regressing player, we payed him like he was 26 just entering his prime. He's not a top shut down dman and he's just getting worse.

we shouldn't have signed him to more then 2-2.5. He's an OK shut down guy with no offense. Giving him 3.5 is bad cap managing(though that doesn't matter right now as we're near the bottom). Plus you'd think he'd be loyal and give a home town discount if he wanted to play his whole career in ottawa so badly. None of this happened.
