He's going to really have to pick up his game or he's going to be out of the NHL.
I think your facts are screwed up. He went to arbitration with Chicago and was awarded 2.5 mil, Chicago decided to walk away so he became a UFA very late in the summer. That limited his market of teams since a lot of teams had already signed d-men or used cap room on other players. 3 or 4 teams incluyding the Habs made him an offer. If there was no market he would have gone a lot cheaper than 1.75 mil. Why would Chicago even take him to arbitration if he sucks as you suggest?
Plus he was traded for a 2nd rounder to Chicago about 10 months ago, I doubt he suddenly lost all his skill.
People love to use a small amount of data and make large conclusions.
